When I went to change my sheets today, I discovered that one of my pillow shams was missing.

How am I supposed to make my bed with only one sham?

So I made myself a new set, which I like much better.
Everything is better with tentacles.


Here is the first one I made.

I used some lightweight canvas from my stash and made a freezer paper stencil for the tentacles.
The color is a gradient of "Walnut" and "Copper" soft fabric paints by Tulip.


Here they both are waiting for...well, something or other.
I think the copper goes well with my terracotta colored duvet cover.
They are both the same, I just flipped one around because I liked the way it looked.

And sorry for the dark picture. The sun was just going down. Sad

When my bf got home, I told him that the Tentacle Fairy had been to visit again.

He tolerates my obsession rather well. Smiley

Those are awesome and so professional looking!  I think they look really great on your bed too, if potentially dangerous to sleep on!
