patchwork label pillow

Lately I have been working on making a quilt, (I’ll be sure and post when it’s finished!) and so when I saw this pillow on Familyman5k’s photostream, it really caught my eye! It never would have occurred to me to collect and use labels to make a patchwork anything! Clever!
Here’s the blurb that Familyman5k wrote to go with the picture: 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.

So true! I know I’ll be saving my labels now!

wow, thats a really cool idea. I’m just in the process of giving a load of my clothes to charity, I’m sure they won’t mind if I take out some of the labels
