Satin Pillow from ....

.....left over fabric about 15 years ago used to make the "dummy" wedding dress for fitting purposes for my daughter.  Fabric for some reason was like a $1 a yard.  I guess no one needed the color.
  
   Here is the picture story of how I made the pillow on a Sunday afternoon with a walk in the park in between 2 short sessions at the cutting table and sewing machine.
   First, I lost the first step which was to cut a rectangle about 3 sizes the length of the pillow. Then:




 Walk in the park


 Cut a lining if the print of the pillow is going to show through a single layer.

    I've only just seen pillows made from sweaters and I can see what you mean about eyeing off pillows for their texture and the possibilities of making into pillows.

    And, no, you can't have too many pillows... LOL!!!
