Patchwork Quilt Label Pillow

My mother made this patchwork quilt pillow from labels I saved for years from old clothes, mostly from me, some from my kids. I really love how it turned out and wanted to share this as it's such a creative and beautiful idea!


Remember to save those interesting labels from clothes before you throw them away. I feel that once people see something like this, many will want to save their labels and someday have one.


Consider adding this as a FAVE so you'll see it later and be reminded why you are saving those clothing tags ;-)

    @Jenna, sorry you have to save your own labels... though I could get one made once you had done that part!
    @clb, you can start now... saving what you do have with your kids as they continue to grow!
    @tootsie, ya I have really liked it over the years
    @Lizzy, save those tags and soon you'll have your own... Congrats on a new machine... I bought my daughter a Bernina a few years ago, it's been a really nice machine.

    this is great!

    I recently made a pillow and a scarflet with clothing, mattress and pillow tags around the edge like fringe.

    @listorama, indeed, we all have our creative quirks!
    @Krom Mama, I enjoyed your pillow and scarf, really nice. Glad you liked the pillow. Sounds like you'll be saving labels from now on.

    Thanks everyone for the comments and favorites too, I'm really happy you enjoyed my unique pillow.

    you have a smart momma... I have a friend that has a quilt with all the ribbons she won riding horses. I am making my son a quilt of jean pockets that I have been collecting... you can take any of your pictures, too, and get them printed onto fabric now and have the center of the quilt or squares made to quilt!!!!
