I'm now trying to accessorize my daughter's room, some more final details and it's ready for reveal time, but in between sheets, comforter, shams, bed skirt, and decorations for around the room, any budget can go way up! It's right there, the price line, where projects like this one help you to stay within budget.
The main material is this Jersey Body Pillow Cover found at Target for three dollars each. They are huge. It looks and feels like fleece, soft.
I cut the pieces for the front and back of the pillow. Then, another piece of the material was folded in fourths, where circles were drawn and cut out, they are 1" and 1/4 in diameter.
Next, a new set of circle rows was placed in between the existing ones, like this:
When all the rows were done, this is how it looked. Lots of texture!
It was time to create the pillow, sewing the front to the back, but first, long strips of Velcro were attached to serve as a closure. I still don't know how to sew a zipper that well, doing it this way, with Velcro, has worked like magic for me.
After sewing the two pieces together this is how it looks.

Only half of the body pillow was used on this project, that means I need to do some more sewing.
