I wanted to show some pictures of the pillow I made my boyfriend, Alex, for Christmas.

I put in around 25 hours work on it, and it all started from a little computer graphic the size of my pinkie nail. I blew it up in Photoshop, marked out a grid, broke the colours down into a guide, bought matching fabric, and cut enough squares to put him together pixel by pixel. I then quilted the top, made the back, stuffed&sewed it up and excitedly wrapped it in a ginormous box!

Aww, thanks!

I also want to thank  'I Sew Cute'  for her compliment in my blog. Smiley It's actually what finally kicked my butt into posting this here on craftster, because I can get a little intimidated by all the awesomeness that appears here.
