Pink Girlie Boudoir Pillow creation



Um, can you tell I reached a creative block when it comes to making pillows?  I wanted to do something different and, well,  guess you could say this pillow is a little different.
I've always wondered what to do with one of these contraptions, lord knows I couldn't wear one of them now if I were dyin!  So after seeing these things in the thrift stores, I finally bought one for $1.00.  I noticed the check-out clerk gave me a funny look that said "hey mama, who are you kiddin, you ain't gonna fit in this!"

I decided to turn it into a pillow, a boudoir pillow.  My dear hub suggested calling it "the lonely guys pillow."  Um.

Anyway, here it is.  Not sure what to do with it.  I might put it in my booth for a good  conversational piece.  Shows I got a sense of humor.  I noticed too, after I made it that one side is flatter than the other, but I won't go there.

I'll let you know what happens to the poor thing.
