Behold, I give you the Awful Pillow.
I made it round with a side panel, originally planning to tuft it in the middle. That is so not happening, in part because I can't find my really big needles (probably not good, I'm sure I'll discover them someday, hopefully not in a painful way) and partly because I used the old pillows guts and Houdini himself would be impressed that I managed to shove them inside. This pillow will not be tufting.
Wanna know the worst part? Seeing as it's now a part of our family room, I have to stop calling it the Muppet pelt. That fabric has been the Muppet pelt for over twenty years, but for the sake of my children I'm trying to at least take it down a notch to Muppet fur. Maybe someday it will be simply the blue pillow.
I made something else my husband was unsure of, I'll show you that next.
