Simply ages ago I bought a beautiful hand embroidered linen laundry bag from a vintage market - and it had been laying on my bed, with a feather cushion inside, with the top of the laundry bag turned over and was using it at a cushion. It's really old, and some of the linen had started to fray at the seams, so it was time to perform a little bit of surgery on it and breath new life into it.....
.....with a few slices with my rotary cutter, a bit of stitching with my sewing machine and a zipper, and here it is as good as new, albeit a little bit smaller!! Looks fab piled on my bed with all the other cushions!
