Patriotic Pillows

 Happy Tuesday everyone!

Well one day of back to work in the books for me.



Spent the day chatting with co-workers via phone
and internet, reviewing all of my emails,
and attended zoom meetings.
Not much work actually done. LOL

Part of my Patriotic creations this year
 are these lil pillows.


I copied the letters from one of my antique samplers.



This cross stitch 
Yankee Doodle Dandy pillow
was a OOAK and already has been sold.


Created some Yo Yo flag pillows.
Some are sold as well.


Once again I also made these flag pillows
using my stash of vintage and antique buttons.
Some sold too.
Red plaid wool and patriotic fabric completes them.


Another OOAK pillow
which again I copied these letters from my
antique sampler.
This one still available.


For the back of this one I stitched USA.


The bumpy fabric is tan chenille which
I am currently using in the store
as a backdrop for my Patriotic display.

Well off to work...
going to my desk here at home
to turn on my computer.
Will be working from home until September
am told right now...maybe longer.

Patriotic Pillow Blessings To All!
Janice

    1. Yes they are. Not many folks do July 4th crafts, so I believe this is why. Janice

  7. Janice, what a great collection of little handcrafted pillows in Patriotic colors and theme! You are the genius! I love them all, especially the cross stitch pillow with alternating colors. Shoppers to your store are going to snatch them up in a heartbeat!

  9. You're so stinking creative. I just started rummaging through my patterns and stash fabric and thought I'd start an Americana project...and then realized it is less than a month away. Yikes! ~Robin~
