I know that so many of us have fallen in love with Pinterest. After all, what’s not to love? Ideas, recipes, inspirational quotes, etc. just a click away. So much inspiration to help make ‘All our dreams come true’. lol!
I must admit, I was a little slow climbing on to the band wagon. My oldest daughter, Nichole kept telling me that it would be much easier for me to ‘create a board’ than to have all of those things saved into my favorites.
Glad that I finally took her up on it. Although, we must remember to ‘fall off the band wagon’ every now and then. Lots of hours can be wasted just clicking away!
A couple weeks ago I saw this picture on Confessions of a Plate Addict. A pillow made from a plaid jacket. PINNED!
I have always been Mad About Plaid! (You can click on the words to see my Pinterest Board if you’re interested).
For me this pillow was instant love. Last week my sister and I went to a thrift shop. I decided to check out the clothing for anything plaid. I didn’t find a darling jacket, but I found a cute dress for $4.
I removed the collar and started cutting and sewing. My son borrowed my camera so I am taking these with my phone. Not the best quality, but this girl couldn’t wait to show you!
I actually tried draping the collar over the large pillow but I thought it looked too much like a dress. I’m sure I’ll find something to do with it.
I backed them with burlap and I still have some plaid fabric to add strips here and there to my outdoor decor. These are going to go out on my Christmas porch. I added my rain boots and tucked a little evergreen tree inside one of them.
Oh,and look! It doesn’t stop there. . .a while back I found this plaid purse at the same thrift store for $1.50
Won’t it be cute filled with pine boughs and maybe a pinecone or two? I had to give them all a dusting of snow so I could get that cozy outdoor feeling.
How about you? Are you ‘mad about plaid’?
