Can you guess what this is?
Ok..maybe the title gave it away.
That fluffy fabric from the past.
These blankets were once made by hand in the 1890's.
As the demand grew they started being produced in factories around the 1930's.
Now they are just a treasure when you find them!
And find them...
I did....Thank you Lord!
On our last day in Round Top
I found these just waiting for me to take them home!
Oh the ideas that were running in my head on the drive home...
Curtains for the Cottage
Pillows for the Bed
Purses...oh the list went on and on .
So what did I make ?
So far I have made pillows
And more pillows...
Now before I start recieving hate mail
because I cut these up...
A few were already pre-cut.
Madison claimed the twin spread before I could even wash it .
Don't worry though...I made her wait.
I soaked all of them in Oxy.
They all came out like new!
The pillows were so much fun to make.
So easy too!
I think my favorite is the sweet pink flower.
This might be as girlie as I can get away with in our bedroom.
So far so good with the pink.
(maybe he feels bad about the ceiling fan..ha!)
I did buy two baby blankets as well.
One blue that say's baby.
One white with a ducky in the middle.
I had an idea!
A girl can have only so many pillows..
So I have added some of the fabric to my Etsy Shop.
You can find them here too
Now you can make some too!
