This year I am planning to make them these:
As far as I can tell it's just pillowcases sewn together. There aren't any instructions. All I have to go on is the photo. Don't they look fun? I am thinking for movie watching, for camping, for slumber parties.
And to make it even better this is what I found to make them with:
You need five and there's two cases to a set so I'm going to do two sets (4 animal print) and one hot pink one. Total cost for this will be about $125. About $74 for the pillowcases and then $50 for pillows (we don't have any extras). It sounds a little pricey but I'm hoping that we will get our money back in use for these. We don't have any loungy furniture or bean bags or anything. I am hoping they last for years. Also, because I should be able to slide the pillows out and wash the cases that should help to keep them nice.
I cannot believe in a few days I will have an eight year old. Josie is turning 8 on the 27th.
