Suz2Sew: These are pillow shams, not enclosed pillows. They have an opening in the back to insert & remove the pillow, just in case you didn't know. The pillow shams are super easy, basically 4 pattern pieces with straight seams. I thought the instructions were very easy. Tip: since the pattern is for many bedroom pieces, keeping sight of the instructions for just the shams could be difficult. I use a highlighter pen to mark the section of instructions that I'm following and pin the instructions to my bulletin board. Feel free to PM me if you have more questions. HTH

pakrk: I just bought my first sewing machine. I already have fabric and pillow forms I want to use. Would this be a good first project? Is it easy to follow?

Thank you for your kind comments! I should state that all DD's and roommate are 18-25 years old. This fabric wouldn't be appropriate for younger girls, I don't think.
