Staying warm...

Here's how you can make a pillow out of cherry pits. If you heat it up in the microwave for about 10 minutes it will keep you warm for an entire movie night!
You need: Cherry pits (this is about 1 liter), two pieces of 32x32 cm of fabric, scissors, thread and needle in a matching color.

Step 1: Cut two squares of fabric (32cmx32cm) and pin them together, the outsides facing each other.
Step 2: Sew the first three sides of the square.

Step 3: Turn the pillow so that the outside is now facing out. Fill the pillow with your cherry pits.
Step 4: Sew the last side of the square, this time with the inside facing each other.

Et voilà, your pillow is done!
