CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ticking Pillow with Vintage French Cheese LabelYaay!

  • Finish the cover by stitching the front and back together. I use an envelope-style closure on the back (you can find a tutorial here) to allow for easy removal and storage.
  • Finally, pop in a pillow form (Mine is a down form from Goodwill for under $3.00) and…
