I made this for the boyf a while back. It's deliciously fuzzy fleece, all handsewn. Originally I made one that was machine sewn but while I was embroidering the details (you will notice I did not attempt this on try #2) I got frustrated when my floss knotted up and somehow ended up with a hole in the pillow. Oops.

Anyway there's not a pillow in it in the photographs because it was being washed. This is what it looks like stuffed with clothes (a little lumpy). Dasani bottle for size reference.









Thanks for checking it out!

This is so cute! I was envisioning something like this for when the DH and I get a house later this year. Can you say game room?!?!  

Edit: Your blanket stitching is fabulous!

Thank you so much for the inspiration! My son uses a body pillow on his bed (the one that I used when I was preggers lol!) I had to sew a pillow case for it because the one I had for it was pink lol and they were too pricey to buy. I made one out of denim look fabric and he was so excited. If he was that excited about something so simple he will flip for this Smiley
