It is actually one of his favorite books right now. He sits down with it and flips back and forth in it for a few minutes. Then he walks around and sits down again and flips through it again. It is very funny. I have even started to put the book in different places on the bookshelf to see if he will find it.
I took my ruler and drew the line all the way across. I squished as many of the feathers as I could down into that end. Then I sewed on the line and a second line close to it. Because there were still a few feathers in the end I was cutting off, I sewed a third line to keep them in the end that would be thrown away. Then I cut between the 2nd and 3rd line.
After, the cut I was left with these ugly pillows.
Now to cover them... I used several tutorials online for envelope pillow cases. It took me about ten minutes to finish them. It was super easy. I used some upholstery fabric from ikea that I bought on sale for $1.99 a yard. For both pillows I cut a 44"x18.5" piece to cover them. So, to cover both pillows cost me $2!!!!
I am pleased with how they turned out. Hopefully, the rest of the room turns out well. I am debating what color to paint the room. Maybe I will just paint the ceiling... So many ideas.
