What materials did you use? Cotton muslin & polyfill for the inside pillow. Flannel or fleece for the pillow cover, nylon strapping and velcro for the straps.

What are you most proud of? That this project is both fun and functional! The kids love choosing their own fabrics for their pillow covers and they adore having them personalized. I love it when the kids are so happy using something that 'Nana' made for them!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I find that the nylon strapping is much more convenient than making your straps from fabric. Either one is fine, and if you are only making a couple of them, it might not be a problem. When you are making them to sell, it is faster to do the strapping. I always heat seal the ends of the straps so they do not unravel. Make sure you get polyester or nylon strapping, NOT cotton as it will not heat seal.

I have this saved, but don't see any directions for the pillow. I have a baby shower soon and wanted to make some for the shower. Thanks!

What a wonderful idea. Have two grandchildren on the way and would love to make them one. Where can I buy the pattern.
