Vintage tablecloth pillow covers

I love cute vintage tablecloths, you know, the cute print floral and fruit ones?  I have quite a few, since I sort of collect them at the Goodwill Outlet, but often they have stains or something on them... such was the case with one that I had that I turned into pillow covers!

It was perfect, since the tablecloth was about 40" square, which meant that I could use each corner and make two matching pillows, not using the center (stained) part!!  How perfect!

After I made them, of course, I realized that they don't actually go with my couch.  I may not use them for a while, but it's nice to know I have them.  And they are soooo cute.  I think they would go so well in a bench in a breakfast nook or dining room window seat, since they are clearly made of a tablecloth.  I put them outside for this pic (it's embarrassing how bad they look on the couch.) ;)

You may remember this tablecloth from this picture...
I pulled out a bunch of things to potentially make into other things, I was thinking bright couch pillows.  None of the other stuff in this pile has been too useful yet.  I'll keep you posted.
