After six tries at making this pillow, I've come to two conclusions:
- I should have started sewing earlier in life
- Follow tutorials to a T before branching out with my own ideas
With those things in mind, I can move forward in my pursuit of the handmade with both humility and pride, for the pair are equally important when you are a hand-maker.
Back to the pillow...
So, even though that entire six pack of Fruit of the Loom t-shirts has been completely obliterated by scissors, at least I ended up with one fun outcome. And it was a happy day to see my friend open this gift with excitement in her eyes.
Ps. I definitely massacred an old chair cushion so I could stuff this baby. (The things you do when you're car-less.)
