Fleece Flower Tied Pillow Craft Kit
Great for group project
This was purchased for a kids class that I host once a month. Usually I create and put together the projects myself but due to some time constraints I had earlier this year I made a few purchased with OT and this pillow kit was one of them. I did not have the problems with the kids that the other reviewers seemed to have. The material was cute just fine, the front and back panels lined up just fine and there was plenty of stuffing. Some of the girls even had stuffing left over. The material is kind of thin that is used on the project, but for the price paid, the kits were just fine. My girls doing this project ranged in age from 5 - 11 and they all enjoyed the project.

perfect for 8-10 yr old birthday party!
I was a little worried about ordering these given the many negative reviews but to my pleasant surprise they were perfect - all the tags had been cut and lined up perfectly top and bottom and there was plenty of stuffing to go around. The girls loved the project and it was a great take-home for them instead of candy in a "goody" bag. Would buy again!

My girls loved it!!
I bought these pillows for my Brownie Troop and my girls loved them!! They are 2nd graders and could tie the pillows by themselves with some guidance from an adult. We have no complaints. The pillows were received in good order. All pieces were evenly cut and of medium quality. The fleece was colorful and soft. The only mini-caveat is that there is barely enough stuffing. Be sure to stretch out the stuffing before putting it into the pillow. There is pretty much there, but if you don't work with it, you'll have trouble filling the area of the pillow. We wanted very fluffy pillows, so we added some more filling on our own...but we expected this to be the case, so we were prepared. Based on our experience, I'd definately recommend these pillows to anyone looking for a craft that doesn't require a lot of planning, cutting, etc. Also, delivery was free and very quick, which was a definate plus!

Despite the many negative reviews I ordered the pillow craft for my daughter's sleep over party. I was disappointed...the way the product is made is poor...they cut the fabric the wrong way so that when you flip the pieces to have the good sides on the outside - the ties don't match up any longer. The ties are not long enough and some where not even cut through all the way. I was having a difficult time tying pillow. You are better off purchasing fleece and cutting the squares and ties.

What a Nightmare!!
These pillows were ordered for a huge Girl Scout function. Thank goodness I opened the bags before the event. 99% of the pillows were not cut all the way or not at all and there was only a handful of stuffing. I ended up re-cutting the pillows (of course I had to buy heavy duty sissors to cut the fleece) and then had to buy more stuffing. What a nightmare! Never Again!!!!

I can't believe for the money I spent I was missing one and when the girls I had sleeping over opened their packages half the frills weren't cut and one had a hole. There wasn't enough stuffing to even make a pillow.
I wouldn't recommend anybody buy this.

I purchased these pillows for my daughter's 8th birthday party. It was a good thing I opened them up in advance of the party. Each one needed to be recut. (The fringe wasn't completely cut on any pillow.) Also, there is not nearly enough stuffing. When I called C.S. about them, they offered to send out another package of pillows. Cheap fleece too, but it will probably be o.k. for what we need.

After having a good experience with the blue camo pillows, I was very disappointed in these. 2 were completely unusable- they looked like they'd been through a paper shredder.
