I am on the constant outlook what to do with doily. I have a huge selection and am constantly adding to it because I have a BIG doily project in mind. But as for the sandals I am still hunting supplies. So when I did A beautiful mess‘ Blog Love e-class I was nudged to this very beautiful guest blog by Courtney Janelle Sews

Now I could just stop here and let you take in the beauty of this granny chic pillow and the doability of this project in only an hour. But I want to show you my version, too…
I followed the instructions leaving out the interfacing and the ribbon and added a zipper.

Then I made a cute little inside pillow by using simple nettle fabric. You can basically follow my directions for quilted placemats just make it a little smaller than your doily pillow cover. Leave out the quilt batting and stuff the inner cushion with poly-fill or the filling of a cheap Ikea pillow
