Time for Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. All winter I have been wanting some wool pillows for my living room, but everything was way out of my budget. So I headed to my local Goodwill and found this Ralph Lauren skirt for $2.00.
It was a beautiful skirt; looked like it had never been worn; and was 100% wool. It was a size 4 (I haven't been a size 4 since I was 4 years old), so decided it would make a good pillow!
I threw the skirt in the washer with some Woolite, let hang til dry, then cut out the lining, zipper, and waistband. My trusty old sewing machine was just waiting to metamorphose a skirt into a pillow. I added some cording I had plus three shell buttons from my grandmother's button box to jazz it up a bit.
I'm pleased with it, and am now on the hunt for more Goodwill 100% wool skirts!
Now, go over to Susan's blog (Between Naps on the Porch) to check out all of the other great projects this week.
Thanks for stopping by,
