I haven't posted anything in forever due to senior year being super busy-- therefore I think it's entirely appropriate that the first new post is a graduation gift! My insanely smart friend is going to MIT next year, and a well-meaning friend's mom gave her an old sweatshirt. Apparently at Catholic schools (which this mom went to), it's cool to have something old and beaten up with the school logo? Anyway, I joking suggested I could make something out of it for her, and she took me up on it.

The result:


The bottom:


It's a fully washable pillow case. I covered up the paint splotches with the strategically-place flowers, while the bottom unbuttons so you can remove the pillow. Also, I slipped an old photo of us into the pocket Smiley

I hope she likes it!
