This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Road Trip Crewel Edition

We’re about to embark on a lengthy road trip, which means plenty of long hours on the road in which to be crafty! But what to work on? When in doubt, I say crewel!


I’ve had this kit for awhile and have been itching to get started on it. Aren’t these pillows just the cutest??


True to vintage crewel kits, this one includes the front and back of the pillow, the yarn needed, the needle, the zippers, and the instructions. It also includes some sweet green velvet piping. I am considering using a different fabric for the back though. Maybe some cute 60s patterned fabric or another color velvet. We’ll see what I find.


So over the next 2 or 3 weeks expect to see updates on my progress on this project. Hopefully I can be pretty productive in the car and while hanging around on our trip. I’ll try to scout out some vintage awesomeness to share with you as well, like I do!
