I had leftovers of different fabrics,so I decided to convert the fabrics into pillowcases in a bit different way.
Black pillow case is made out of a leftover from my curtains.I made the classic look of a small pillow case,but used double folding on the inside of the closing so it looks cleaner.instead of doing classical buttoning,I made button holes on each side of the flap and then put green ribbon through and tied them in nice little bows.
It’s a lovely decoration,and can be made in any style you feel like.
The red pillow is actually an old towel stuffed with fabric bits.
I didn’t know what to do with the towel,since it couldn’t be used anymore so I thought of a useful
I shaped it like a heart,sewn it almost closed then stuffed with bits of fabric and closed.
Then I took the upper ends of the heart,pulled them together and sewn them tight.
I hang it on the inside of my bedroom door and use it while watching something in bed for under my neck.
It’s also quite brilliant when heated in the microwave for relaxing my neck.
There is a little trick for making it a muscle relaxant.
Instead of sewing bits of fabrics you can fill it with grain(wheat).
When you heat it up it serves for relaxing muscles and removing pain.
It’s quite often used in Finland for back pains,and I use it for my knee pains.
Works like a charm.
The only thing you make sure it’s a fabric that can go in the microwave without burning(no polyester or anything alike.)
