Sliced Fruit - Pillow Sham

What are you most proud of? HOW TO MAKE A BODY PILLOW: I bought two anti-alergy pillows and removed the stitches from one end of each pillow. I joined the two pillows with handstitching. NOTE: The best part of this anti-alergy pillow is the tough cloth exterior--makes them superior for handstitching/joining two pillows. I paid $6 each for them at the dollar store and rate them the most comfortable pillows I've ever had. Having said that--I broke the bank and bought 10 pillows (some for future pillow body construction), and the remainder for our bedrooms. I love these new pillows. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This would make the ultimate pillow fight pillow, wouldn't it?
