What to do with all those Walmart bags?

Make a pillow, of course!  (Saw this on A Beautiful Mess blog and changed it just a bit.)


I just stuffed a bunch of those bags into a 1-gallon Ziploc bag,

 made it snug and zip it closed and thus, a waterproof pillow form.

I headed over to Hancocks for some outdoor material and whip up a pillow. On the Beautiful Mess blog, they made an envelope case, but I closed it with hand stitching.  


Okay, there is a bit of crunch, crunch when you squeeze it so you probably wouldn’t want to use it for a nap, but for an accent pillow, it is cheap, weatherproof and keeps those bags out of the landfill just a bit longer. Win/win!
