Ticket Stub Fabric

April 2nd, 2015 by Cobwebs

Ticket Stub PillowsThis is a neat, fairly simple way to commemorate a favorite concert or similar memento: Scan them, upload the images to Spoonflower, and print them out on fabric.

Redditor Sunflower_Fortunado posted some that her mother had turned into throw pillows, and noted in the comments that her mom had used the service previously to make kitchen towels out of a handwritten recipe and given them as gifts.

Someone else in the comments suggested making a quilt, which is a neat idea but could get expensive if you custom-printed a lot of different tickets. A repeat print of a single ticket would be interesting fabric for a dress or shirt, too.

If you’ve saved ticket stubs from a special occasion, this would make a really thoughtful gift; one of the other thread commenters said that his wife still had the movie tickets from their first date, and he was going to have fabric made from them.

Throw pillows require minimal sewing skills, so even a novice should have no trouble turning out an attractive, very personalized, decorating accessory.
