    When I was in grade school, we made initial pillows, all very rounded and puffy. (Think 1970’s feeling groovy.) Your crisp example is much more to my taste these days. Adding something else to my To Make list…

    The E pillow is so cute! I also really like the print on the other cushions in the photo.

  32. Linda G says:

    What an adorable pillow. I never thought to make a letter pillow for my daughter. Then again, we share the same letter in our first names and I would probably have to fight with her for the pillow.
