I made this pillow by first sewing a simple square pillow out of a cheap sheet and filled it with the foam. Then I sewed an envelope pillow using the fabric from the original cuddle bag. I wanted it to be easily removed for washing and that fabric is great because it really is heavy duty and cleans beautifully. And if ever I get tired of the fabric I'll just make another cover for the pillow. easy peasy. And almost completely free (I think I spent 3 dollars for the sheet at walmart and didn't even use half of the material).
And you know what? She loves it just as much as the ugly one.
