OK, I'm almost embarrassed to put this up.  You people are amazing.

Anyway, you know those little Magic Towel washcloths, the kind that expand in water?  Our local Dollar Tree has a whole bunch of Muppet and Disney ones right now, and I picked up a couple because I wanted to make something for my nephew who is Muppet-obsessed.

My mom made us pillows out of printed washcloths when we were kids.  At first, I thought I'd get all fancy-pants and make a little pillow with piping around the edges, but let's just say that experiment was a disaster.  Apparently I am not a quick study at sewing piping.  So after a lot of cursing and seam ripping, I thought I'd make something a bit simpler.  Back to the dollar store.

So, two washcloths, some recycled fiberfill and four homemade yarn tassels later, here's what we've got:


One side...


T'other side.

I've got to say, I think I like the tassels more than the original (yellow) piping.

Whaddya think, sirs?

How adorable!  I love the tassles...much more "fun" than piping would have been and I liked that you used different colored yarn for each tassle.
