If only I knew this a year ago :) DIY boppy pillow, there is a link to a pattern that you can print out, but will need to cut it out and tape it together. Make sure you make the pillow then a couple of covers so you can wash the covers as they need it.
What a darling kitty-cat pillow/plush toy! Includes templates and instructions! :) @Jocelyn Merkel - this would be a cute one for you/us to make for Ellie! :) Lots more pictures of ones other people did: http://juguetesbellos.blogspot.com/2012/07/blog-post_9347.html
