Recycled Battenburg Lace

I took down and stored some Battenburg lace valences when I redecorated a guest room and now I've used the lace to make pillows.

The valences were too narrow to make pillows, so I carefully removed the lace with a seam ripper and sewed it to the new fabric, then stitched up the new pillows.

 There is almost always a reason to hang onto everything!


  1. Very nice! I love the ruffle lamp in the background too!

    So pretty! I found some lace this past weekend thrifting and now I have an idea for it :) TFS.
    I found you today thru the Linky Party at Someday Crafts, where I'm #131. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!

  3. Lovely pillows Linda! I agree, I almost never throw anything out. Sometimes I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I certainly know what my hubby's answer is.
