“The rain rain rain came down down down
in rushing, rising rivulets…”
Whinnie the Pooh at its best
That little lovely song really describes today. Nothing but rain, rain and one more time rain. But well, Danish summer just isn’t real without a little a ton of rain. 
But actually I really like rain some times: it’s great running-weather, it makes perfect light for photography and in general it’s just cozy. I love the sound of raindrops on the roof and windows (dying from coziness here).
Last sunday I straightened up my closet. And gosh, how I love it now. It’s way easier to find my clothes (and my OCD likes my closet that way ;) ).
As I said I found a lot of old stuff which I’d like to make into new things. For instance I found an old shirt/ dress which I never use. But I really like the fabric. 
Not very pretty, huh?
One of my friends has the cutest little bucket bag with a silhouette of a town and I have to say, that one very inspired me. 
For my birthday I got some very nice textile paint, and I’ve wanted to use it since I got it. Thank you girls!
A thing I really like about the pillow is that there are buttons on the back. In that way you can still see it once were a shirt :)
The cushion cover is very easy to make:
  1. Find two pieces of fabric which suits your pillow (mine were 40×40 cm)
  2. Make a templet for the silhouette 
    1. I just used ordinary paper, but I think the result would be better if you used some kind of paper which sticks to things.
  3. Pint the silhouette
  4. Sew together the two pieces of fabric. You don’t need the buttons on the back – you can just make an ordinary pillow.
Hope this could give some inspiration :-)
