I like this idea. Pillows are so easy to make and because this one is made from a dropcloth I bet it will be very durable. And I love how you can use paint to design it yourself so you can use your imagination to create your own unique pillow. You can use them in living,den or bedrooms. So get your dropcloth and paint and see what you can design, sew and stuff and there you go.Done.

Can't get the directions!!

It is working now. You just have to click on The Silly Girl site where it says and it will take you there. I had to read a couple times before I figured it out. Sometimes I click on Go to project and it don't work and next time it does so could have been down. I hope this helps.
