So this is the pillow that I made a few days (weeks?) ago. It’s really super simple. The amount of time it took me to make was around 6 hours, mostly because I took a few breaks. There was even a point in time where I had to stop for a half hour because I was seeing almost double. I should probably mention, I was half tired for this project, I was on a deadline, and I’d been awake damn near 24 hours.
It’s a giraffe print fabric, with a slide open back so the pillow can easily be removed for washing.The light fringe goes all the way around the pillow and is made of a soft fleece. It was a commission from my sister, meant to be a gift for her best friend for Christmas/her birthday, as her birthday falls on the Christmas holiday.
