Frenchy Postcard Pillow

My brother got married this past year and his lovely new wife suffers from allergies, particularly down pillows. So they were cleaning out and redoing all of the throw pillows in their house and they happened to toss them my way! I came back from our visit at Thanksgiving with several bags full of down pillow inserts. Now that the holidays are over, it's time for some sewing projects.

Of course, I turned to Debbie over at Confessions of a Plate Addict for some inspiration! Here is her version of a Pottery Barn pillow that she shared awhile back.
 So I made a copycat of a copycat.

I printed off the postcard images onto iron-on transfer paper, trimmed the images then ironed them onto plain muslin. Then I top stitched the "postcards" onto some ticking fabric that I had in my stash. 

Here is my version, looking very fresh!

Gotta go, I've got more pillows to make!
I like to join these parties
