This is a pillow I made from a T-shirt. My dd bought it for her boyfriend, but it was way too large for him. She wanted to keep it, because she liked the shirt. So she asked me to make a pillow. I thought about doing the whole shirt in a pillow, but it just looked so plain.
So I asked her if we could border it. She liked the idea and thought we should try to match the letters. I made a trip to Joann's and found this blue fabric. It's hard to see in the photo, but it's a bright blue denim-looking fabric. I had a hard time with the mitered corners but managed to finally get them right after a few tries. I also decided at the last minute to round the corners.
I will also be working on some window treatments for his house. Stayed tuned for those. He wants manly treatments and since he loves to fish and hunt, dd and I came up with a really great idea using linen burlap and fishing hooks. Can't wait to show you those.
I also have a new cutting/pressing table coming soon, and I want to show you that too. So check back for that!
