Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Vintage handkerchief pillow tutorial


{I came across a great little book entitled Sew a Beautiful Gift (Claire B. Shaeffer, Sterling Publishing Co.; New York, NY, 1986) while out thrifting last week and I just couldn't pass it up as it was chock full of easy-to-follow patterns for everything from tote bags to children's aprons.  One of the tutorials in the book was for a one-piece pillow that was perfect for a vintage handkerchief that I bought for a dollar at an estate sale last week, although any piece of square fabric will do.}

{After you've followed the first two steps, turn the pillow right-side out and then fill with whatever you happen to have on hand.  Once your pillow is stuffed, hand-stitch the opening closed; if you're feeling truly wild and crazy, feel free to add a button to the center of the pillow to give it a nice, tufted look.  Then sit back and admire your handiwork!}
