There are certain things I readily admit about myself. One is that despite all good intentions, I am years away from getting to do a lot of the projects I set aside material for. So I gave in: instead of making a quilt from saved baby clothes, I made a pillow that a certain four-year-old is mad about. The inspiration? Country Living’s recent Buttoned-Up Pillows. For mine, I cut a zipped-up blanket sleeper into a square (it’s okay to cut off the bottom of the zipper so long as it is zipped; you’ll seam across it later), measured a matching piece of pink material, and with right sides together, sewed around all four edges. To finish, simply unzip (easing down a bit from the top before before you can reach inside), turn right-side-out, and insert a 14-inch pillow form. Zip back up and you’re done! –Sarah L.
