Pillows Using Vintage Lace Items

Well, Tropical Storm Isaac is bringing lots and lots of rain to South Florida so I decided to make some pillows - three to be exact. 

I had two pillow forms and  a pillow from the couch that I recovered and didn't use, so I thought I would use some of the stuffing from it.

I found some fabric from some previous projects, surprisingly they seemed to compliment each other very well.

When I was looking for the fabric, I found a vintage piece of lace from a dress front. I thought it would look great on a pillow, especially the paisley print. I loved the way it  looked. For the next pillow, I wanted to use a woven beige fabric to add some texture. However, I needed to add something  to tie it to the other pillows. So I thought I would add a piece of binding; however, I didn't have what I wanted, so I used a piece from the paisley print. I still needed something to set off the strip. Off to my vintage button collection where I found a vintage buckle. For the last pillow, I used print and the striped fabric. I needed something to add to this pillow as well. Off to my button collection again where I found three vintage buttons. I still needed more accent so I went to my vintage lace collection. (I have many collections!) It payed off in the end. Now I could put them all together. I liked how they turned out; what do you think?
