I found this small vintage table cloth the other day, and originally I was planning on cutting it all up, using the print in different ways as accents on new pillows.. but, like I always do, I got it home, looked at it, and decided there was no way I could cut this fabric apart.  Its too pretty.  Soooo I decided to make one big pillow case using it.
Since the fabric is white, I decided to make it a pillow case, and then make a pillow insert for it.  It took about 4 hours for both parts, and cost me only $8.99!  I love my new pillow, and it matches my living room perfectly. ^_^
If anyone is interested, I could do a tutorial, did I mention that I didn't use a sewing machine at all?

Here is a shot of the front and the back of the pillow:

And a few close ups of the fabric:

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.

It is very pretty - I love this kind of vintage finds. And what you did with it was great.
