My daughter had the extreme good fortune to spend a bit of her summer in Turkey and she returned with lovely tapestry woven table runners- one for me and one for her.
Of course she had a plan for hers that involved me using the table runner to create two matching pillows to replace the ones I had sewn for her as a house warming present last year ( the girl is seriously hard on pillows ).
She said "all" she needed was the pillow covers because the pillow forms were still usable... see how easy it would be?
Of course I agreed and working off the 18"X18" measurements of the pillow forms I cut two pillow fronts out of the Turkish tapestry table runners. I also carefully removed the tassels ( I love tassels ).
I purchased 5/8 of a yard of fabric for the back on the pillows and two 16" all purpose zippers.
I was ready to start sewing...
