Time for some Patriotic Spirit..
The shoppes on Sutter St. Here in Historic Folsom, Dress up the windows to get ready for the Big Rodeo and 4th of July celebration in our town..
There is a Cattle Run-down the street-with a small parade to kick off the 51st annual Rodeo..
While we were out hunting , i came across some Vintage Burlap Potatoe Sacks and they happen to be in (red-blue) which would be perfect for our windows..
I decided to use one to make pillows.
Laying out on the floor- cutting to the size i needed.
I lined it with linen-and used same linen for the back-so it would be a double sided pillow.
Pinning the pieces in place, then Sewing Inside out..
leaving the bottom open to finish the seam.
And a little down filled red-blue burlap pillow..
( a lil hard to see with glare-but the 2 pillows i made with the old burlap potato sacks sit on the settee on top of a vintage worn flag in the front window)
This is the other window..
