Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Oh thank you so much so simple direction , I had found a video years ago but now it is deleted off of you tube I was just lost how to do this but now found LOL Thank You

You're Welcome! Glad I could Help! Happy Creating! T

These remind me of the pillows on my bed when I was a little girl. There was a pocket that I would place my pajamas in so that I knew where they would be at bed time. I know I would be the only one to use the pockets for its intended use though. My family can be so hard to train, lol.

I would be thrilled to make these for my family and even more proud if I knew they would used the pouches. This is a genius idea. Our remotes are forever getting lost down in the cushions of the couch. It is not like the table is in a position that you need to get up to use it but maybe a pillow under the head or in the lap may be used more readily? Who knows. It is worth a shot.

I have made plenty of pillows before but never with these pockets which is such a clever idea because grand kids are always losing the remote and this way then can keep it in the pocket or their money or jewelry. So many things you can put in these pockets. Also great idea for a gift for any age. Anyone agree? Great tutorial.

Thank You for comment. I am so glad you like them Weberme. This is one of my favorite creations. Ps. Sorry it took so long to reply to your comment. -) Have a Happy Creative Day! Tina J.

Could I use this pattern to share with my volunteers? I runa group called Stitch for Cancer and we collect and donate hand made items such as hats, shawls, blankets, scarves and arm pillows to local cancer centers. This pattern would be great for an arm pillow for cancer patients to use!

Greetings rosie101684 8730420 Sorry for the delay on a reply. I just saw your message today. YES please feel free to use my pattern for a good cause as well as personal use. Thank You for asking. I appreciate it. Regards T

Ask your local hospital about that majost. i'm sure they'd love the idea

I made one of these about 8years ago with star and moon fabric. I put a contrasting patch of Sun material to make the pocket so that we could keep the current Harry Potter book easily at hand. My teenager still keeps that pillow handy !

This looks like such fun to make and with my stash of fabric, no problem. Wouldn't they be great for hospitalized children? Wonder if I could find an organization that would use them. majost

If you do find a charitable organization Majost feel free to use my pattern. Regards, T
