A pillow for Vicky

I know, I know, I know…. another pillow, you’re thinking. Well, yes. I made another pillow 🙂

My best gal pal in the world since 8th grade asked me to make her a pillow. So, I did. Ain’t no big whoop.

She provided me with these:

Recognize that print? I rocked one of these out via a No-Sew for St. Patrick’s Day. Anyhoo, she can’t wear these to work. Expired Holiday shirts are a No-no at the Bux.

But they’re oh so comfy and would make a great pillow, n’est ce pas?

Using my pillow as a template, I got an idea for the dimensions I would need to cut

And I, uh, cut it 🙂

Image

Then, right sides together, I pinned around 3 of the 4 edges

Image

I secured those edges with my Serger

Image

I left 1 of the 4 sides open so I could fit the pillow in there. Duh 😉

And, I thought I’d try something different with the final edge… I cut strips about 1″-ish apart.Image

Then, I tied them in a knot

I thought this would be the easiest scenario for washing purposes… I don’t know about Vicky or y’all but I’m a drooler, big time. There. I said it.

Vicky’s my best good friend, as Forrest Gump would say. She “takes care” of me and my coffee needs if you know what I’m sayin, *wink wink. So if she wants me to make her a pillow, I’m gonna do it! 🙂
