I’m a minimalist when it comes to pillows on the bed. For a twin, I like two, maybe three tops. A bigger bed can hold up to five, but that’s pushing it. The bed in my old room at my mom’s house has no less than nine pillows, and it’s only a full! I think it was the agony of making that bed every day that made me take a “less is more” attitude when it comes to the beds I have to make as an adult. I made one sham to match the bedding for Charlie’s room, and since she still cosleeps on occasion, I needed a small decorative pillow too. You know, to shove down in the crack between the mattress and the wall. Because she may or may not have slid down in there once or twice. So now we take preventative measures!
I stuck with the LOVE design I’ve used on her onesie and her Gamma’s Mother’s Day shirt, but made it all horizontal to match the $1 travel pillow I snagged at Wal Mart. The front is scrap “Lamb in Pink” fabric from her duvet, and the back is an old tan sheet. See below the jump on how to quickly make a custom screenprinted removable pillowcase. I know, it’s a mouthful.
