I've never made a pillow before, but after seeing so many cute tutorials online, I finally decided to jump in...BIG time! Basically, they are baby-sized quilts with flaps attached for slipping in a pillow! First I had to figure out what size to make the quilty top for a 26" pillow. What did I decide? Around 31-32" gave me enough border to stitch to make a bit of a flange all the way around.

These were such fun projects to work on that I really hope the boys love them! I'm hoping they'll feel free to throw them around on the floor, lay on them to play video/board games, pillow fight and just really USE them! I knew I wouldn't get them done in time for Christmas, but promised them early this year. Yikes! A little late, but the love is there!!!
