I’m continuing with projects that use vintage embroidery and lots of autumn-colored scraps.  I found this free pattrn online and made it into a place mat.

I embroidered another vintage pattern and added fabric to make a Halloween pillow.

The scary, feathered owl was a birthday gift from my younger granddaughter who liked it so well that she bought one for herself.

I made a pillow set for my vintage folding chair.  This design is based on a Helan Barrick decorative painting pattern that I first used about 25 years ago.

It’s fun to take the embroidered pieces and figure out what I can do with them, using scraps and reducing the amount of leftover fabric I have to store.
