    Well, beautiful to me at least.

    We had this really ugly backrest pillow from what I'm suspecting was the the 1970's. It was brown, yellow and green. It was gross. So I found a pattern from McCalls (McCalls 2450) and made the pattern for the pillow. I believe that I did a pretty good job making the cover to go over this hideous pillow. I can't wait to get it to my new dorm room and hope that people ask me about it...

    The colors of the new cover are different shades of blue... and more appealing than the first one. I love it!
