My husband's grandmother gave us pillow cases that she embroidered. They are beautiful! I love them and want to keep them forever. For that reason, they have bounced back and forth from the linen closet where they stay safely folded, to the bed where I freak out whenever my husband actually uses them. So, today I turned them into throw pillows... decorative throw pillows. Now they can be displayed; admired and not used. This was really simple. All I did was cut up an old pillow, robbed it of it's stuffing and sewed some new edges. They look great in our bedroom!
