I saw the cutest Minnie Mouse pillow on DisneyStore.com last fall, and knew I could make my own - easily and for less $$$. When I thought about a gift our new baby could "give" her big sister, Annelise, I thought the pillow would be perfect! It was pretty easy to make (1 nap time) and if you add shipping to the original, I probably saved $10 (could have been more if I'd had a coupon, but in your last week of pregnancy, you can't wait around for a coupon).
Here's my pillow, and the original from the Disney Store:
Not too bad, huh? Do you have a Minnie Mouse lover that you just NEED to make this for? Here's how:
14x14 pillow form
1/2 yard Pink polka dot fabric (I've only found it at Joann)
fat quarter solid black fabric
sewing machine & basic sewing supplies
