I made these lighthouse pillows about a month ago when I needed a break from larger projects. I couldn't blog them until now because I wanted to give them to my mom for her birthday. It took her a year or two but she's finally started reading my blog (you know your blog must be boring if even your own mother won't read it-haha!).
The easiest thing about these pillows is that I didn't do the lighthouse cross-stitch myself. I found them in a shoebox of vintage fabric that I had purchased at a yard sale. I almost tossed them but eventually I remembered that my parents have a mild lighthouse theme in their house (yes, it's very "New England") and they have a dearth of couch pillows.
I used stash fabrics to make these - most of it being beachy fabrics designed by Tula Pink.
The person who sewed these cross-stitch pieces labeled them with locations in North Carolina but I unpicked it all out.
It felt so good to finally use some of this "junk" that I apparently find irresistible at yard sales. Thanks for reading!
