(I have no idea where I should really be putting this, but since its a pillow now, I'll post in home sweet home.)

I work in the children's department at Kohls, and lots of parents like to take things out of packaging to look at it, and then leave it like that. We mark it down and sell them for much cheaper individually, but no one buys them because they think something terrible happened to them to make them so cheap. So we get these socks and underwares and other packaged things floating around. (Not.. literally 'floating'. That would be much more difficult to handle)

So I bought these on my lunch break yesterday for 50 cents. (Plus 15% off employee discount, woo!) And just made them into a little pillow before I go back to work.

Its probably not the most origonal idea ever on Craftsters, but I think its still pretty cute. I didn't stuff it all too great, but I think the lumpyness will go down.

Its also got the cutest little stash pocket now! I have no idea how to seal off the other end of that.. hole, thing.. without it looking wierd. I used clear thread, but it still shows.

There are also little tiny socks at my work that I want to do something with, but I can't come up with any good ideas yet...

Thanks for looking!

And the earth was without form or glory.

Cheesy Love the stash pocket! Lol Grin

And you can make the small socks into pin cushions. And cell phone cozys. And other-small-stuff cozys. And bean bags Cheesy

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.

Coin purses.  Tiny socks make great coin purses.  I did that with a couple of my daughters infant socks.  You can use buttons or zippers to close them, velcro would work too.
