Halloween Tied Pillow Craft Kit
These little pillows are really cute and fun and easy to do. I had no problems with the fringe or images.

needs more stuffing
Bought these to use at home to add to our Halloween decor. No problems with the images being off center yet ( we've only made two pillows) but I can say a few of the sides, the fringe wasn't fully cut. No big deal to snip though. My only real complaint is there is definitely nor enough fiber fill to stuff the pillows. Still thought these were a great project and I'm having fun making them and getting ready for fall/ Halloween!

The ends on these pillows were sometime not cut all the way through and were very different lengths making some sides very hard to tie. There was also not enough stuffing for each one so they were very flat.

Well, 1 of the 6 pillows was okay.
Where to start? Three of the six pillows didn't have the fringe cut in one side. One had a chunk where a piece of fringe was missing and the fill would have come out the hole if not for some creative tying on my part.
Speaking of the fill, it's a good thing I had a bag of it because the pillows required twice what was provided to be as plump as the picture shows them. They don't end up being square, either, unless you want fill falling out all over the place from not tying the knots super tight.
Only one of the six pillows had the picture centered on the piece of material. One of my ghosts is saying "OO!" because the "B" is completely in the fringe.
One jack-o-lantern pillow had what appeared to be a bleach spot in the middle of the pumpkin's face.
I'm glad I just ordered these for something fun to put in the reading corner of my pre-k classroom. If I'd bought them to have a group of older kids make and take home, I think I'd have a lot of sorely disappointed children on my hands.
