My grandmother (Mimi’s mom – the very crafty one) used to spend hours making pillows exactly like this. I can remember she generally made them out of ultrasoft, light-weight corduroy and I loved to touch them and lay my head on them. Except for that big button thing in the middle.
That was usually my job.
To sew on the big buttons.
They were all soooooo perfect it amazes me. And, even as a little bitty girl, I was amazed by the precision of each one. There was a dark maroon one that was my favorite. Red IS my color.
I will be grateful forever for that love for arts and crafts “gene”. I just wish I were that patient and precise.
To Grandma With Love and Great Memories,
Your Granddaughter, Suzanne
