Here's the thing...  HE http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/2662/beibiuz0.jpg is my bf, (and HERE http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/3171/lovrs1vg2.jpg we are haha)

he doesn't like 'traditional' stuff, you know, like love cards or pink hearts, he's not corny (only when nobody's looking xD)


I wanna give him a cool valentine gift, and i have this statements:

1. he would like a loong pillow ( http://cdn.overstock.com/images/products/JL949087.jpg )
2. he likes goth and medieval things


and i was thinking on making him the pillow, but i don't wanna make it with plain fabric, and i don't know what exactly use. ?

i've searched on etsy and i saw some interesting things like:

* a resin necklace (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9077820 )
*cork necklaces ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9094911 )



i'ld rather handmade the gift, i don't know... some ideas to make a nice pillow?  
but i also wanted something that he can take with him, like a necklace, what do you think?

well, with knowing ONLY this about him..lol

i would make him something he can either wear (a necklace) or something he can use (a journal)

perhaps work with polymer clay and glaze and make something like the 2 images you shows mixed....
-or-
a journal with a poem you write dedicated to him

Does he wear jewelry though? Some guys (mine incl.) will not wear a necklace. However a keychain is always good...

OK.  I've got it.

He wants a pillow, right?  Make a pillow with plain black fabric.  Applique a chain across it and use some kind of metallic type fabric to make the chain.  Have the chain "wind" around the pillow.  Then in one of the corners, applique a broken heart.
