After choosing our flannel shirts we needed to choose the correct size pillow form.  We put a square piece of tag board the size of our pillow over our shirt and cut the shirt out. We had to make sure we had no seams in our piece of cloth. We than we turned the pieces inside out so the buttons were on the inside so we wouldn’t see the stiches. After we sowed all four sides we turned it back the right way and then put the pillow in through the buttons and then buttoned the buttons. We created pillow covers. These are very practical pillows and can be used for many years to come.
