I love, love, love old wool blankets!!! When I go thrifting, I am always on the lookout for vintage wool blankets in yummy colors... I have a huge collection, and even though I have used them to make tote bags and to cover benches, I am always on the lookout for easy projects. A while back, on a visit to my sweet friend Joy's house, I saw some pillows she had made with a vintage wool blanket, and loved them!!! I decided to recreate them: I cut sets of 20" blanket squares using a scalloped rotary blade, sewed three sides, stuffed the pillow in, then finished the fourth side! No seams to turn, no slip stitching, and in less than two hours I had whipped six pillows!! I even made one with two different sides, so you can switch sides depending on the mood... Thank you Joy for the inspiration!!
My name is Isabel Feist Lang, and I am so happy you stopped by!! I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, but one day I met my prince charming in his dress blues and now call Oregon home. I am a wife, mother of four and incurable collector!! I especially love pink roses and my favorite color is... pink!! My fondness for all things vintage has led me to a little venture selling at antique malls and shows! Thank you for visiting!
