My kids don't pay attention to much, except those printed 'best before' dates on pillows. Honestly, they hassle me for new pillows until I give in.
Rather than throw them out, I'm going to make quilted covers - then they can use them to lounge on, sit on, squish out of shape and generally 'kid-ify' them.
This fabric is a poly/cotton blend which I picked up on sale at Spotlight last night and quilted with a double layer of batting.
I backed the pillow in a pair of old jeans which which went through a hot dryer one time too many.
I cut up the legs and sewed them to make a big rectangle. I even added a zipper.
Honestly, I am ridiculously happy with this recycled pillow and have one more to make before the kids get home from school.
But first, coffee.
How do you get your "SewJo" back?
