It's true: pillows are the ideal way to get started sewing. This one's super easy to pull together— so easy that you could make it with your kids — and it'll teach you a bunch of key skills you can apply to future projects. Or maybe you'll just keep making pillows! If you ask us, every room in the house deserves at least a few.
