I often pick up old dishtowels and napkins on my vintage treasure hunts. I was tired of just letting them sit on a shelf, or worse yet, watching one of the kids use one of my beautiful towels to actually clean the house with. Several of of my pretty embroidered towels have been ruined this way. I have been making pillows with some of my old linens.
This old American flour sack that I used some crochet on around the edges.
This red toweling fabric was sold by the yard in France, where I bought it.
I used buttons for the closure.
This pink napkin came from a French chateau.
I used some leftover linen for the back.
