This is Angel's beloved pillow. Though she rarely lets me wash it, it is starting to show the wear and tear of being a 3-year-old's constant companion. She morosely showed me three visible tears on the cover.
At first, I just thought to patch it up with squares, but since I have some nice Japanese cotton, I decided to do flowers. Just cut the petals big enough to cover the tears, and use a different fabric to make the middle.
Position it over the tears.
Start to sew!
Voila! A new lease of life for Mr Pillow.
