Silly me I forgot to take a before picture. But I have had a sack dress sitting in my cupboard that Mum made me back in high school. I didn't wear it much - because who knew a sack dress is rather sack-ish (she told me I wouldn't like it but I of course wouldn't listen) It was a copy of a dress I saw in Delia*s. And being the awesome Mum that she was she put all of the embroidery on it too-- in hindsight that is why the dress was so cool anyway!
So because of the embroidery I have held on to it meaning to re-purpose it for longer then I would like to say... I am getting old people... haha
So here it is-
Now a pillow. I put a ric rac trim around it because it's fun and seemed to fit the embroidery
I haven't decided yet what I am going to do with it/where it will go
But it's fun to have it be a usable object after having it take up space for so long!
