Sweet Dreams-How to Make a Dream Pillow
1. Pick out a fabric for your pillow. I usually use an old shirt that I no longer wear.
2. Cut out two 6" by 12" pieces of your fabric.
3. Sew together three of the sides on the wrong side (so that the pillow is inside-out).
4. Fill a mesh bag with your choice of herbs and flowers (make sure you look at the list below before adding your herbs).
5. After you have chosen your herbs and tied your mesh bag, slide it into your pillow.
6. Add the desired amount of stuffing to your pillow. Remember, the more you add, the less you can smell the herbs within.
7. Sew the remaining side of your pillow.
8. Slip the dream pillow in your own pillow and enjoy!
