If you're happy and you know it... make a pillow. Pillows are one of the best things for a beginner to tackle； they're fast， fun projects for anyone and immediately brighten up your décor. This pillow is what we envision Little Miss Muffet's tuffet must have looked like. We show you an ultra easy way to create its gathered top and bottom. The body of the pillow starts out as a tube， then you gather the top and the bottompillow shams floral， cinching the fabric to create the cushion shape. The gathering points are concealed with jumbo covered buttons.
We originally created our pillow in the Happy Land？collection by Jennifer Paganelli for FreeSpirit Fabrics. This is an older collection that is no longer readily available， but current options for happy prints are everywhere. We visited our friends at Fat Quarter Shop and picked out two wonderful alternatives. For the top， bottom and sides： Large Floral in Orange from the Flower Sugar collection by Lecien Fabrics. For the contrasting piping and covered buttons： Hibiscus in Pink Rhapsody from the Paradiso collection by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics.？floral pillow cases

Just like happiness， pillows come in all shapes and sizes； and when you're creating a pile of pillows on a bed or sofa， it's important to vary both size and shape. A unique shape in a bold color will make your pillow-scape more interesting and fun. Arrange big， blocky pillows in the back， happy little pillows in the front... just like when they lined you up on the bleachers for grade school class photos!
Our pillow finishes at approximately 14" in diameter x 7" deep.？

The instructions that come with the kit were very informative and I was able to make my bracelet easily from beginning to end.
