More Sewing!

Here is another project from the sewing class.  This was HAND-SEWN!  Look at those beautiful, straight stitches.  Even if it is for UNC - ha, ha!  :)

You really don't even need instructions for this one, but in case you are brand-new to sewing like me, this is a fantastic project for beginners.  Choose fleece in your favorite sports-team-pattern or other pattern.  Cut it twice the size you want your pillow to be, plus a few inches for seam allowance.  (About 24" x 36" works well for a bed pillow, or you can make a smaller throw pillow.)  Fold the fabric in half (with the "right side" inside) and sew straight stitches around two of the three open sides.  Turn the pillow cover right-side out, fill it with poly-fil stuffing, and whip-stitch the remaining side closed.
