Blanket Pillow

I bought this blanket at Target's after Christmas sale for three dollars.
I loved how soft it was and thought it would be a great fabric to make pillows with.

But, life keeps marching on at it's very busy, yet wonderful pace, and it's taken me till March to finally get to this project.

This is the first pillow I made out of the blanket and I still have pieces cut out to make another one.
I think eventually I'll put them on both of my daughter's beds.

But for now it sits here on our couch.

Cutting all those circles out by hand for the center part of the pillow took A LOT of time.
{Although watching "Emma" made it not quite so boring.}
I'm so happy with how it turned out.
A year ago, I don't think I could have ever imagined turning a blanket into a pillow.
It's amazing how the blog world can inspire you.

On a totally different note, I'm offering free shipping through March 9th on any of the newly listed
ribbon belts in my etsy shop.
Just use coupon code: KHSBELTS

~I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Cute idea, love the circle part. I'm sure its time consuming but worth the effort. Good job!
