My only home-sewn present this year was a pillow case for the bf. He always asks me if I mind that he plays video games, and really I don’t care. I am usually sewing, cooking, crafting, blogging, writing reports for work, or reading. I think that there was one time where I asked to watch TV rather than the Dragon saga video game. So, I thought I would make him something for when he plays video games. I made him a pillow cover; I even used his college’s colors – Dickinson red.
I think the hardest part was having something to tell Bf that I did all day when I was working on the pillow. I paper pieced the top, which I had never done before, so it took me longer than a typical project. I wanted to have something to show for my day, but couldn’t tell him about the pillow, so I mixed making Christmas cookies with sewing, making this project take even longer.
It has been on the couch for about three days and it is already well worn; look at all those wrinkles. I’m taking that as a sign of love.
