I’m such a fool for vintage linens. I especially love heirloom fabrics with hand embroidered details, or cottons with a touch of ladylike lace. Vintage tea towels remind me of something I’d see nestled on top of my grandmother’s vanity beside her silver comb and mirror.
So when I spotted a stack of vintage tea towels at a local antique store for a few dollars each, I purchased three to create some unique pillows for friends who are about to have little ones.
Just like a bride, I think every nursery deserves a touch of something old and something new. So I created these tea towel pillows – they are sewn together with a crisp cotton vintage tea towel, a scrap of accent fabric, and some modern trim.
