Study Pillow

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

This lap-size cushion does double duty: right side up, it's a plush headrest; flipped over, it provides a flat, cloth-covered "desktop" for a child to write on in a notebook or journal.


  • Craft knife
  • Foam board (sold in office supply stores)
  • Oversized kitchen towel, about 18 by 26 inches
  • Pillow, 12 by 16 inches (sold in fabric stores)
  • Straight pins
  • Paintbrush and fabric glue


1. Use a craft knife to cut a 10- by 14-inch rectangle from the foam board (a parent's job).

2. Place the towel right side down on a flat surface and center the piece of foam board on top of it. Set the pillow atop the board.

3. Fold the towel around the pillow and board, as if wrapping a present, and pin all the edges in place.

4. Adhere the overlapped edges by removing several pins at a time and using a paintbrush to apply fabric glue to that area before repinning the section. When the glue is completely dry, remove all the pins, and the pillow is ready to use.
