I hit my stash and found some good options.  Good for cat pillows, anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the first bag I made:

It only took about 30 mins to make this.

Basically the longest part was turning the drawstring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the pieces cut out:

Ok, I’ll write up a step by step tutorial here soon…but it’s super easy.  You can probably figure it out from the cut pieces.  If not, no worries, I’ve got the step by step tutorial coming soon.
