This Pillow Used to Be Pants

I’m back guys! :D

I wore these pants in 1999. I saved them because I knew that I’d use the fabric someday.

Today, I made a pillow. I used the backside of the fabric because it’s actually prettier than the front.

I had to make the pillow in four parts on each side since the pant legs were too small to make the front and back in just two pieces. This happens a lot when you recycle stuff. The key is to hide it and make it look like it was supposed to turn out like that.

I will be back in a few days with another update. In the move I saved these 80’s curtains from being thrown out. I ordered a dressform last night and I think this is going to be the first thing I do with it.

Can’t you just imagine these awful frilly curtains as a dress? I can! The color is SO 80’s but I think it could work.
