Adding pictures to a pillow has never been easier!  If you have lost a loved one, making these DIY memory pillows may just be for you.  Add them to your bed or a favorite chair to be reminded of them every time you go by.

  4. The fabric just peels from the paper backing.

  5. Place the printed fabric with a piece of white fabric that is the same size. These should be placed right sides together.  Use straight pins around the outer edge to hold together.

  6. Sew around the outer edge remembering to leave a 3 inch opening in one side. Trim the excess seam with scissors all the way around.  Then turn the pillow right side out through the opening.
