My mom loves to read at the breakfast table or when she's knitting. Newspapers are great for these times, but what about that novel you can't put down? That's where my book pillow comes in! This pillow allows you to read comfortably and hands free in almost any position and is great for people who want to do something with their hands while reading.
This can be made by hand or machine, and can easily be altered for a hardback or paperback reader.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
About a yard of fabric. Really lightweight fabrics don't really work for this. I recommend medium to heavy cotton or a light canvas. You can use something like suede, but it makes the gathering step harder, and makes it necessary to use a machine.
Needle and thread (make sure your thread is strong)
Chalk, or something to mark the fabric with
About two bags of pillow stuffing (not pillow forms, don't confuse the two)
Optional bookmark or large clip, like the ones used for office supplies
