Mr. Darcy

Untitled
Hi there friends! I want to share a little something I made for my sister a few weeks ago for her birthday. She (like most of us, I'm sure), is a huge fan of Pride & Prejudice and maybe swoon-y for Mr. Darcy. If you are a fan of P&P and Jane Austen, you might have already heard of the etsy shop, Brookish. Well, I had the idea to buy a tea towel from them & turn it into a pillow cover for Jill.

So, I did. 
For the back, I used a vintage table cloth that my mom had given me, & made an envelope closure. I think it turned out pretty cute, well, the cover that is. The pillow form is sadly a cheap, wonky one. I should maybe get a new one.

So yeah. Here it is on my bed. It's now on Jill's, but I'm thinking of making another one for me. :)

  5. I saw you on Pintrest and had to pop over...I made one a while back and finally moved it because my husband kept making fun of it! Love your backing.
