Pillow By Day...Blanket By Night

Pillow By Day...
...Blanket By Night
My sister recently got married and my little guy was the ring bearer. My sister made him what we call a "quillow" for a thank you gift. Our "Bama" made these for all the grandkids when we were little. These nifty little blankets fold up into a pillow. They're simple but lovely.

On one side of the blanket has a pocket that is approximately 1/3 the width of the blanket.
To turn the blanket into the pillow, fold the blanket lengthwise in thirds with the folds behind the pocket.

Flip the blanket so the pocket is face  down and fold in half upward.

Fold in half again, so that the blanket is folded to the same size as the pocket.

Turn the pocket inside out so that the blanket is inside the pocket, and now you have a pillow!
