Are you a vintage mud cloth and/or indigo pillow owner?  I know many of you are!  The african vintage mud cloth fabric is definitely trending and the pillows are a must for many of us to complete the modern bohemian look.   Pillows complete a room FOR sure . . . but they should also be practical.  If you have to worry every time you lean against a pillow in fear it will rip, that’s just not cool.   Ever have this problem with your vintage pillows?

Yep – me too.   I am in the business of making pillows . . . and this is NOT cool.  Even though I reinforce the seems with a stitch, this is still bound to happen if you use your throw pillows for everyday life.   When this happens, you can take out the pillow insert, turn your pillow cover inside out and with a thread a needle, sew the seam shut.

BUT I don’t want you to have to do that.  So, from now on, on all fabrics that seem vulnerable to seam issues, I am sewing the entire piece of vintage fabric to another piece of fabric, making sure to include a stitch along every seam.
