Recently, I helped a friend start clearing out things from her mother-in-law’s home. It’s a lovely home filled with stately antique furniture, interesting art work, many sets of fine china and so many memories!
The craft room…where to start? We could hardly walk in the door of this bedroom turned craft room. There were craft items stacked on the floor, on the bed, on the desk and in the closet.
I left with a yard of lovely canvas weight fabric. It’s a bright, bold print that just begs to be made into patio pillows.
I like the butterfly, even though it’s flying upside down in this picture!
These patio pillows will make a nice Christmas gift for my friend. I think her family will use them to make new memories in this wonderful home.

What a thoughtful thing to do – sewing up a pair of pillows using family fabric as a gift.
I hope they like them AND I get to play with fabric!
A perfect Christmas gift! The fabric is beautiful, it looks hand painted.
Good Morning! What a lovely gesture. I hope you share the finished patio pillows with us, as I’d love to see them. I never would have noticed that was a butterfly since it has a similar shape as the leaves near it! Good camouflage I’d say! Happy Happy Tuesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
Yes, I’ll be sure to share! It IS a happy Tuesday, isn’t it?
Love the fabric — perfect for pillows! Happy Sewing 🙂
A perfect Christmas gift! The fabric is beautiful, it looks like hand painted art work.
Thanks, Abbie! I think they will like the pillows!
That was wonderful for you to help your friend and what a wonderful fabric find! Looking forward to seeing images of the pillows you make from that beautiful fabric!
