          6 months later and I have made 57 pillows!!!  Did anyone else end up making them?  I'd love to see pictures.

           

          I thought I would post since my sister came up with a great saying to attach to them... "Siesta so you can Fiesta"

           

          Also to all the ladies thinking of making these, it is a commitment.  But once my sewing machine and I made friends it became a lot easier.  I just had to fool around with the tension and...well not be scared of the machine. 

           

          I did cut some corners... I didn't sewing the opening so it had a hem.  I just left it as the terry cloth kind of rolls.  I also folded it so the opening ran the long way across.  Less sewing and it was a lot easier to get the pillow in.

           

          Wedding is in May, hopefully everyone uses them. I know I will :)

           

          Few pictures of them rolled up.  I just rolled the two together and tied with rafita.

                  Your pillows look great! Where did you find the inflatable inserts?

                    I ordered the inserts from here...

                    http://www.outinstyl...50138-CASE.html

                     

                    Works out to $1 a pillow plus the shipping costs.  Which I don't remember being a lot.

                     

                    We are on vacation this week.  I will let you know how the test run with mine goes :)

                      Just checked shipping and it's an additional $41.26. Too bad that's almost the same amount as the order!
