Bring back some memories of the 1940's when you make this vintage Halloween pillow. A great gift for a grand parent.
Almost a year ago I spotted a handmade pillow at an antique store. It was made from a vintage card of ladies at the beach that was dated around 1930. As soon as I went home I designed this pillow. I LOVE my pillow and this vintage Halloween craft greets everyone as they enter my home during the fall season (along with the cute witch doll I made too!)

Here's the directions for it:

Enjoy! and Happy Stitches,
Judi
