Summertime screams water balloons, pool parties, and fresh-cut watermelon! This patched watermelon pillow will have you smiling each time you see it. You can brighten someone else's day, too, by making one for them! Attach a note that says, "Thanks-a-Melon" and let that person know how much she is appreciated. I can picture making these for those special teachers in your children's lives, too.
