The Crown Pillow Made By the Queen!

OK, go ahead & curtsey to the Cranky Queen. Yes, I am "tootin'" my own trumpet! I made this feed sack pillow with my own sewing machine!
This was the inspiration pillow that Dutchess Melanie & I found during our trip to the Country Living Fair in Georgia. The price was $45!  I may be the Queen, but I am a frugal queen (except when I am spending the Cranky King's Royal Funds!) Mel whispered to me "you can make that!" So began the search for the feed sack bearing the royal crown.
 So I purchased the old feed sack off of EBAY for less than $10!
The sack was similar except a little darker in color & less stained!
My plan is to surround it by similar feed sack & ticking pillows on an old white iron baby bed~turned lounger.  Cranky King has his work cut out for him (I have not told him about the baby bed transformation yet!)
Time for my nap! Maybe I will use my crown pillow to rest my head on!



  1. Tiffany,
    So glad you visited! Your pillow is fantastic, so much better then spending the "big bucks"! If only I could sew! Your turkey collection is fabulous! I have a pair of small ones that looks almost exactly like some you showed! I will be posting the rest of my collection next Monday so come by if you get a chance! Am your newest follower and will be back often!
    PS. Looks like you had a great time at the Cl Fair! We are going to try to go next year!

  6. I really, really, really need to get my sewing machine out!! When I see how easy these are I need to talk to myself to get sewing.

  7. Great job! And love the idea for the baby crib!

  8. Congratulations! I was at the Country Living Fair too - I saw all the French Grain material and all the wonderful grain sacks - you're right - quite pricey! How very clever to find one for yourself to make! I had a blast, though! It was so huge and amazing! So glad I stopped by for a visit!
    God Bless,

  9. What are the chances you'd find the same feed sack? I like yours better. Keep that sewing machine out and get hunting for some more sacks!

  10. Good for you! You know if you keep talking to your sewing machine, she may become a very good friend!

  11. You did GREAT! I purchased two feed sacks at an antique shop and they still smell bad. I haven't been able to do anything with mine yet! I'm scared if I wash them they'll fall apart...LOL.

  12. Just darling! DIY pillows are the way to go. Great that you found the same feedsack and made your OWN.

    :Curtsying deeply: "Well done, your Highness"

  15. Love this site!!! The pictures are lovely!!
