new old pillows
23 June 2014 Comments Off on new old pillows
We love to have many cushions on the sofa,
(perfect for lounging)
but ours had become
flat and worn.
There’s not much to do on a rainy damp day,
so we turned the tv to Wimbledon,
I pulled out some vintage fabric
that had been squirreled away –
grey upholstery velvet and yellow floral –
and sewed a few squares.
One little boy was happy to fill them with stuffing,
then I closed them with quick blind hand stitching.
Millie, Her Royal Highness approves.
