I did these a while back for the big kids. I saw the idea in a magazine...I love magazines! Anyway, the idea was to take a baby blanket and make it a big pillow once your kids got older. I loved this idea since we are military and move all the time...I have to keep getting rid of things and it's hard to let go of the baby stuff. In fact, by this time I only had a couple of Diva's and only 1 of SkaterBoy's left. Which isn't bad considering they are 8 and 5. They were both the thinner blankets (if they were the double sided ones I could have just opened a side and stuffed them), so I bought some coordinating fleece, sewed them together, stuffed them and that's it. I need more stuffing, so you will see they aren't closed up yet. The kids love pulling them out for our Family Movie Nights, and it let's me keep some of their baby stuff around a little longer.
