Take a traditional Victorian era, feminine craft like embroidery, and use a masculine working class fabric like denim, and get creative. A little embroidery, a little recycled fabric and stuffing, a little sewing, and we have a pillow. This maybe a very offensive word for some people. But I think... sometimes it's the only word that really says what you want to say! Enjoyed doing this one, so I am working on another one. It does take a long time to do all that embroidery, but its satisfying, mindless evening pass-time, while its dark and cold outside this time of year. Only downfall, Buddy the golden retriever seems to think its for him and wants to play with it. He has a habit of destroying stuffed things he plays with. Put it where he will not get it!
