Here's a pillow I made for the boyfriend for Christmas. If you know him at all then you'll get how funny and fitting this is. Even if you don't. All he ever talks about is the army, and plus right now he's working on a recruitment contract so it's even more appropriate. I gave it to him earlier this week and he loved it. It will be a conversation starter at every party ever [and then anyone involved in that conversation will immediately wish they had disobeyed the pillow. :) ] And now when I'm over at his I'll have a quality-assured throw pillow to snuggle up with and not just last night's pizza box.
Who says you can't combine armed forces with handicrafts?! Long live embroidery.
