Recycling fringe...

I think if cans, wood, and plastic can be reused-recycled to make new items, then all beautiful fringe should be reused as well!
That said- this is exactly what I did last night. My pillows on the love seats were old, worn, torn and faded. I hated them. I did however, love the fringe that was around the edges of our pillows.


A couple months age my hubby brought home a bolt of leftover fabric, from a job. It was outdoor fabric -so I never gave it much thought and stuck it in the garage.


This weekend when we were pulling out Christmas decor boxes, I saw it and looked at the colors in the fabric, and the stripes, and thought that it would go perfectly fine in my living room! So I removed the fringe on all my old pillows...


and at 9 pm last night, after I had cut out the fabric, I sewed until midnight and made it my goal to finish them before bed.


This morning I admired my new indoor/outdoor pillows. I like the fabric because it will resist the kids finger prints and hold up real well.
