I went to the biannual rummage sale at the Christian church last week. One of the things I bought was a Boppy pillow. The cover was a little faded but the price was very right - $1.
First I machine washed and dried the pillow per its tags instructions - the trick to machine washing pillows is to wash 2 at a time so the tub stays balanced.
Then I cut apart the original cover that zipped on and off and used it for the pattern to make a new cover.
I used some that really soft Minky fabric in pink. I got the Minky at Hobby Lobby, just needed 2/3 of a yard and I used a 40% off coupon so I think it cost about $5 for the fabric. This project also used a 22 inch zipper.
It was nice to sew with but I don't really know what it would be good for except baby blankets and simple pillows or upholstering projects.
My tip, if you do sew with Minky, is don't wear a black blouse while you cut Minky, it's thick pile leaves lots of lint.

here's a new picture of little Gavin. He is 14 months old, walking all over and his favorite thing to say is uh-oh whenever he drops or throws something.
