I cut out the pockets then attached them to the front of some cotton houndstooth fabric.
Then I used the back of the shirt and sewed some cording for the edge of the fabric.
Then I sewed all the pieces together.
See the cording? I used the shirt fabric for the back of the pillow too.
Then I stuffed it with pillow stuffing.
I cut off the button placket and tied it around the pillow as a ribbon for Megan. I had that cardboard M at the house and thought it would look cute as the "gift tag".
It seemed like there were a lot more steps as I was doing it but that was pretty much it! (Jenna, yours is coming soon!)
