Recycle old kitchen towels

Just yesterday I had to shortened hubby's jeans and when I finished it I thought about sewing the kitchen towels I found in Red Cross second hand store about 2 months ago.  I found a very interesting inspirations in one of Mollie Makes magazine about a woman who turned old kitchen towels with bold nice pictures.  And I want to make them too, so when I score some kitchen towels in Red Cross second hand store I know I had to buy them.

Here is a picture of the three pillow cases I made yesterday.  The crocheted one I finished sometime ago but have just finished it into a case. While the other two are the ones from kitchen towels I found.

Here is a picture of the kitchen towel pillow case (the one on the back) :
I choose red and yellow buttons to add more interest to it and sew it with embroidery thread.

And the small long pillow :

I love the picture in this kitchen towel, it's about cheeses from all over France.

Spring is about to arrive .... enjoy the sun ....
