I admit to wanting a Boppy. Those cute crescent moon shaped pillows that make great nursing pillows and infant loungers just seem to call me. That is until I see the price. After that I just want to run. I am pretty crafty and a novice seamstress at best but I know an easy sewing project when I see one. Boppy you’re going down! Momma is doing it her style. Now if only I could find enough pirate skull fabric to make a SkittlesMomma Infant/Nursing Pillow and Lounger.
Right now I have some nifty rocket ship fleece that would work really well. My plan is to use one of the pattern links below to make the pillow using a standard pillowcase, afterwards making a couple of covers.
