The back opens up so you can slip the blanket and pillow inside.

Draw your pattern and cut out, mine looked like this.
(Remember your pillow will be smaller than your pattern because of the seam allowance)

Cut two
 (mine have a seam up the middle because they were to big so I trimmed them down)

Pillow- pouch  Tutorial
I never knew making a pillow this way was sooooo easy!

Cut out a long rectangle.

 Hem both short edges

 Fold with about a 3" overlap in the middle and sew up the sides

 Turn right side out
