What materials did you use? I used a piece of denim and denim scraps. I made a newspaper pattern in the shape of a dog biscuit, any size. I made this for my chair but it could be for the dog!!!! I cut 2 pieces, front and back and a 3-inch piece for the gusset. Then I cut my dogs name from the scraps and hand appliqued it to the top pillow piece. You can sew it on however you want, zig zag applique, any stitch will work. Then I took a piece of bias binding and sewed that around the pillow top, sewed on the gusset and then the back piece, leave an opening, fill with fiber fill and stitch shut and you have the cutest pillow in town!!!

What are you most proud of? That I can make these items up and get them done in an hour or so. I love to make quick fun items, long lasting projects bore me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If putting a gusset in the pillow is too much just sew the top and bottom together and turn inside out. I think these make great gifts for dog lovers!!! And use just the initial if the name is too long!!
