{Vintage Inspiration} chenille bedspread goodness...

When I got my hands on these vintage chenille bedspreads, I knew right away what I wanted to do with them. I really liked the idea of playing with texture & pattern in my plush critters. This particular floral bedspread made me think of my owl plush. Given that art imitates life & this was a bedspread that I was working with, I felt it appropriate to make my owl a bit sleepy.  So meet Sleepy Olivia Owl.... (she's Ollie Owl's sister).

The other three chenille bedspreads seemed perfect for some fancy slugs & I made these for hutch studio. The textures are so fun to work with... I think I'm hooked. Did your grandma have a chenille bedspread?  Or did you have one growing up?


  1. OMG these are the best!! Too too too adorable! Save a slug for me!

  2. Thanks Chantale! They are so fun to make. :) Which slug is your favorite?

  3. GORGEOUS!!!! And yes... chenille bedspreads were the best (I actually still have one... hidden out of sight but SOOOO soft) Love!
