A Gift a Day Gift Ten: Texture Pillow
I made a pillow form out of a yard of muslin I had bought from Jo-Ann a couple of months ago for .99. I then stuffed it with some of my found batting. The front of the pillow cover (it has an envelope closure in the back...I make sure I can wash everything I make for my son especially) is knitted with a combo of cotton yarn and acrylic yarns I had (to make it not too absorbent, which the cotton yarn would have done and to make it not too heavy either). The back of the pillow cover I made with micro fleece that I had in my cloth stores.
Total time to make project: About eight hours (I hand sewed the pillow cover together to make sure the knitted front fit correctly to the back of the cover).
Total Cost: About .25 to take into account the 1/4 yard of muslin I used for them pillow form.
