I made this for my son:

Looks just like a plain normal pillow here, but there's more...

Close-up of the felt star:

AND.... Here it is! On the other side, there is a "learning thing... like...  Roll Eyes"
You know for him to tie his shoes, zip his zippers and all...

Close-up of the shoe lace thing

Close-up of the buttons and snaps

And last, my son's favorite use of it... (lazy as his dad!  Cheesy)

I am actually very proud of this! It started out crooked and everything looked "off". But when I sewed the 2 fabric sides together, I tried to straighten it and it worked! Woooo!  Grin

absolutely EVERYTHING is from Wal-Mart and cost around 10-15$ for everything and I have plenty left for other stuff!  Grin

All your comments are welcome and Thanks for watching!

that is, like, the cutest little learning thing I've ever seen.

I just want to pet it.

Great job!

veggie head 4 life: Of course, I just wouldn't recommend it for under 3 yo, because of the buttons, snaps and eyelets. But I am happy to give you the idea!
