For example, for my sister's past birthday, I decided to make her some pillows.
Why pillows, you ask?
Because: octopus fabric!!
|Yes, she loves cephalopods.|
And, also, because she recently moved--and is now a homeowner! And what better way to celebrate a new house than with new pillows? ;)
Ultimately, I made two pillows... one with an orange octopus front and a blue back, and one with a blue octopus front and an orange back.
|All sewn up.|
|Ready to be stuffed.|
I mailed them to her super late--but at least they got there before Christmas!
And, here they are--ensconced in their new home!
...They are even cat-approved!
|...This is my pillow.|
Silly, you probably thought they were yours.
Birthday present... housewarming present... Mailed straight to her new house, so that she didn't have to pack them... Overall, I think it worked out well.
Hurray for octopillows!
...And now, it's time to finish all of the Christmas presents! ;)
Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
