I'm going to show you something very embarrassing and you have to promise not to laugh or be disgusted. Ok, promise? This is the pillow that my mom made for me I can't even tell you how many years ago. Some kids have blankets that they keep forever, I have a pillow. And this pillow has gone past the point where I can ignore how gross it is that I sleep on it.
My new pillow came together a bit on accident. I have been thinking about making a new one for some time now but wasn't sure what I wanted it to look like (I'm not quite as in to Mickey or random beach things as I was). I kept putting it off and putting it off. Until one day, I was cleaning out my closet and saw a quilt that I had started oh so long ago. I was about to throw it out when I realized that it would make an adorable pillow! So I quickly folded it in half, stitched up 3 sides, stuffed it, and sealed it. The whole thing took me about 6.8 minutes and I'm completely in love with it (those are my favorite sorts of things).
