This is a 16" x 16" pillow cover with caged birds in various yummy shades of pink from pale pink to raspberry on a crisp white, linen-like background, solid white back with an envelope closure and five self-covered buttons.

Odds and Nipperkins doesn't do anything the easy way. So you say, "Hey, Odd Janice, what makes this pillow so special? Why do you want 30 bucks?" Well, for starters, this is amazing fabric. I found this as an old tablecloth in one of my favorite charity thrift stores. Sad, sad, full of spots and marked, "as is". Even then it wasn't a bargain, but I had to have this fabric and hope I could make it work. So after a week of soaking, stain treatment and hoping for the best, I was able to eke just four pillow tops (which met my impossibly high standards) out of the entire tablecloth. The fabric is crisp and clean, and since the weave was open like a linen, I lined the pillow top with white fabric prior to sewing on the back. The back is a heavy white cotton with an envelope style closure, double stitched at the stress points. Then, just for you, I risked my thumbs and created five self-covered buttons, being sure to get some of the delicious pinks on each and every one. I then hand-stitched all of these buttons on the pillow back, again, because I wanted you to have the best! There are a lot of hours in getting this pillow cover from a thrift store find to a pristine, gorgeous item for sale, but you are worth it.

This item does not include a pillow form in order to save you money and shipping costs, but it is a standard size available through fabric or craft stores. Also, this item is not intended for children under three because it does have small parts. Note that the pillow back photo may be from a different pillow of the same fabrics and same construction so the fabric placement on the buttons may be different, but all the other photos including the close-up of the buttons are from the listed 16" x 16" pillow.

I do have another listing for an 18" x 18" pillow in the same fabric, and I will soon be listing a 14" x 14" and a 12" x 16" pillow if you prefer a different size or want additional pillows.

Once these are gone, they are gone! Convo me with questions, and please be sure to stop by my store for vintage finds, handmade items, and some great fabrics!

SHOP IS ON VACATION – ITEMS WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL 7/25, BUT YOU CAN STILL PLACE AN ORDER OR CONVO ME! I WILL BE SURE TO CHECK MAIL AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. THANKS!
