This time I designed and made these two decoration pillow cases of recycled traditional Finnish woven wall hanging called "raanu". They are made of wool but the warp is traditionally white cotton. Don't try to do this unless you are advanced in sewing and craft. Simply because you need to be very skillful in your sewing skills and understand the structure of woven fabric to avoid the warp to fray out and whole project to turn out to a disaster.

PS. If you google "raanu" you will find many pics of this traditional Finnish wall hanging. They are very colorful like our autumn nature and Northern Lights which both usually inspired the designers. Today "raanu" is not popular anymore because it is often considered too big, needing too much space and old fashion. They used to be hang on the walls to create warmth.
