Pillows are so nice and easy to make, that I had to make some for the baby's room. When Brady was a baby, pre-sewing machine, a pillow was the only thing I made for his room. He still uses it sometimes.
The girl version is a cut our gathered heart. I was trying to make something close to this, but what I got is just fine too.
The back is just plain red pre-quilted fabric. (love using up the old fabric around here)
The boy pillow is the red fabric, with an appliqued car to the front. Can you tell it is a car?
The back is just some of the car fabric.
Both took less than a naptime to make, and were super easy.
