Butterfly Pillow, Rebooted

I thrifted this crewel-work pillow back when it was smaller, and didn't have a border. Enjoyed it for a few years, until it started to give out.

I think it's a double thrift bonus when it's remade with a new thrifted backing, don't you? Like using up at least the letter J in a game of Scrabble.

Just think if that pillow insert was from the thrift store, how high my score would be!

Nice... but I'm curious about the pillow in the background. Looks like it has a beautiful butterfly design...

Susan, that was a lucky brand-new thrift store find itself.

It's adorable. I have a piece of needlework I must have completed over twenty years ago, in my teens. I looked at it yesterday and decided it would make a fun pillow. I plan to do much as you have done, so thank you for the visual!
