One of theirs will set you back $24 (and that’s just for the cover). My version cost 6 bucks (yay remnants!) I had the pillow form on hand and the button too.
I adore being organized. Actually ... I adore dreaming about being organized.
This project is relatively quick and very simple to sew. I think it would make a perfect gift for your next baby shower! Materials
