Let’s say you see a pillow in one of your favorite catalogs and you think, “Come on. I could make that. Right? I mean. I think I can make that. Well, let’s ride this train until it crashes and proves us otherwise.”
You have these sorts of conversations, right? Right.
Take a pillow from your favorite thrift store.
Cut that sucker open. Be surprised when it is filled not with an enclosed pillow, but filling. Press on.
Use that gross, former pillow case as a pattern. Dig through your bin of remnants and find a piece that will work. Cut to size.
Get out a ruler and stamps and some dark ink. Pick your message. And go!
And sew. Leave one end open so you can stuff that sucker again.
