Vintage Scarf Pillow

As you all know I LOVE thirfting.
When ever I shop I always find these really awesome vintage silk scarfs.  I buy them thinking I will totally be able to style them... but nooo, unfortunately they hang on my scarf rack untouched.
The patterns on the scarfs are just so cute and I was sitting there thinking one day This would make the cutest pillow!

Such a fun scarf!

First I measured my pillow (A thrifted tan blah pillow) 18 x 18 then I cut out a large piece of felt 19 x 19 to add a half inch of room on each side.

I pinned it to the scarf and did my best to line up the sides.
Next I ran it through the sewing machine leaving space open to stuff my pillow.

My new FAVORITE pillow!!! I seriously adore it.

Sophie's Tip: Leave a big enough hole on the side to stuff your pillow once you are done sewing like, leave almost one whole side open.  I didn't leave a very big hole so I ended up ripping some of my scarf... Don't worry though, I fixed it :)
