Starting Out Sewing Pillows

I decided to start experimenting with making pillows first. I chose pillows because when I was a little girl, I would go over to my grandma's house next door and dig into her leftover fabric and try handsewing my own. I remember making a few little pillows and was so proud of myself. Now that I am grown up, I am trying out "pillowmaking" again, and have had much success! Pillows are also very simple to make since you are working with square or rectangle shapes.

Materials Needed:
*Sewing Machine
*Rotary Cutter/Cutting Board
*Iron/Ironing Board
*Ribbon if needed

Here are my pillows so far in order of creation.

My first sewing project, ever. Used fabric that a friend gave me to experiment with.

The Dora Pillow I wanted to make for my daughter's big girl bed!

Experimenting with ribbons around the pillow.

This one is double sided, where the fabrics are different but compliment each other.
