Have a great friend who (of course) LOVES her grandbaby, but doesn't get to see her very often...so I made her a pillow, so she can give her a hug everday! I saw this 'method' on this site about a year ago..not sure what it was called, cannot find it again! Darn!! So, I did the best I could from memory. Just not so sure about the black.Anyway, this is my first try and she was happy with it, so I am happy.
