Vintage lace cushion 100% recycled materials

I love to recycle fabric, clothing, you name it, and since I am a sucker for a mixed bag of vintage trims at my local thrift store I had a stash of small lengths of vintage lace and different trims.

Cue project idea, a thrifted Dark Blue Linen skirt for the front, a thrifted Blue Velvet dress for the back and before I knew it the cushion was finished. The inside cushion form was also recycled, with a former life as a bed pillow that was flatter than Kate Moss'. I cut in into two giving me these perfect sized inserts, then pulled apart the stuffing and refluffed it all, then one went into the Union Jack pillow and the one left over became this cushion.

Total cost :$2.00

You gotta love a project that you can make out of nothing.
