Keepsake Pillow

I made this frame back in August when I first started my blog. (you can see how I made it here)and I finally turned it into this cute pillow.Here's how I made it: I started off with the embroidered piece, 4 brown fabric pieces the length of each side and 2" wide, and the pink corners are 2"x2". Pin right sides together (two of the sides) and sew.Pin the pink square to the ends of the top and bottom pieces and sew. (I had to cut my brown fabric 1/4" so they lined up correctly but you may not needs to-check before you sew)
Pin top and bottom pieces on your pillow front right sides together and sew.
Lay right sides together on your fabric you are going to use for the back. Pin in place and cut out to get the correct size.

sew around the pillow and leave an opening to stuff. Pull pillow threw so Its right side out and stuff. hand stitch shut. You now have a sweet pillow to help you remember those tiny hands and feet.
