Making a Paper Towel Pillow

January 27, 2016

Paper Towel PillowThis craft is a decorative pillow made with a left over fabric remnant and utilizes a roll of paper towels. Yarn tied on both ends holds the pillow together. The pillow is especially cute when done with a country design and will fit with any decor. Daisy May chose to help highlight the beginning photos ;)
