Recycled Patchwork Pillow with Rainbow Ruffles


Front view


Back View:



Made with 100% recycled materials, including old jeans, old t-shirts, and previous stuffing from a tired pillow.

I love color, so I made the ruffles from tshirts, gathering them in the center.


 All the stitching is in color too- red,orange,yellow,green, and blue.




The process:














See the colored threads?




























Mia is holding her beloved tea cup here, she walks around all day saying "Wanna cup-a-tea?"







I've had the tiny cherries forever...finally they are put to use.

 I think they are super cute!



I'm entering this in the "Stitched in Color" pillow contest. Join in the fun!

  16. However, that is another motivation to get yourselves great sleeping pads for your beds. Once you've discovered the correct sleeping pad for your bed, you have to purchase coordinating bedding. www.adlist24.com
