tea towel pillow

I have been collecting old (we call it VINTAGE, right?) fabric for years.  You can find it at garage sales, antique stores and even Goodwill sometimes.  I'm not sure why anyone ever printed calendars on a dishtowel.  I see them at junk shops all the time... which leads me to believe they never get used.  Today I'm going to use one to make a pillow.  

I found a fabric that I wanted to use on the front with the towel.  I had a little bit of this cute orange ribbon to use too.  I sewed the 2 fabrics together and then added the ribbon and ricrac.  

Once the front is finished, cut your back.  I used a vintage sheet for mine.

Sew them all together and voila, you have a super cute pillow!
