Pillow Project

Jonathan has been after me lately to make a pillow for Rani to sleep on and since I was feeling lazy today I decided today was the day to get busy and make one.

I used a medium weight canvas type fabric with red stripes that I found at the thrift store last year. This fabric reminds me of the old blue stripped pillows we used when I was growing up.

Once the pillow was made I lined the inside with quilt batting leftovers and filled it up with a soft foam stuffing that I purchased for 50-cents a bag at a garage sale last year. It took two bags to fill the pillow.
Once the pillow was complete I took an old sheet and made a pillow case. I am hoping the pillow case will help keep the pillow clean. Rani didn't know what to think about her new bedding.
Jonathan laid next to her but she still wasn't sure about it.
I imagine in a couple of days she will love it. Hopefully she will shed more on the pillow and less on the couches.

Once she knows its really hers to lay on she will probably love it.
