The Goodwill Jacket Pillow

My friend Betty regularly haunts the aisles of the Goodwill, Salvation Army, and hospice shop. We got together one day and she hands me a jacket saying she'd seen it and just knew I could make something out of it. And I did. Closed up the front opening (buttons and all), turned it wrong side out and sewed as big a rectangle as I could between the sleeve openings and neckline; then turned it right side out. Stuffed it and sewed the hem closed. Betty thought that I'd really like the pioneer theme. And I do. I just keep trying to figure out how the lute playing Renaissance guy who is apparently singing to Rapunzel in the castle comes into the story. I guess instead of being pioneers the people in the wagons could be gypsies. Any thoughts?
