I whipped up this pillow for my good friend who is an Archaeology major. We both like trading silly historical relics with each other and after seeing an overpriced Rosetta Stone paperweight at a museum I knew I needed to make a pillow of it.

We nicknamed it Rosie, and it's at least a foot long.

This is amazing!  And it's a pillow?  That's really cute. Cheesy  I'd love to have one of these.  How long did it take you to make, and did you use puffy paint?  It kind of looks that way.

Yes, it is a pillow! It's 100% softer than the actual stone. It took me a day to make and a lot of careful painting. I used some shiny 3D fabric paint, and I'd make the text smaller and put more space between the different languages if I could do it again.

Awesome! I want one for my very own!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Thanks everyone!
Tapirgirl- double thanks! I think it rocks too.

If I made it again do any of you think it should be bigger? Or is about a foot a decent size for a Rosetta stone pillow?

Don't second guess your work. It's perfect just the way it is! I knew immediately what it was before I even clicked on your post...just by the thumbnail.

I was fortunate to see the real thing at the British Museum. Looking back, I don't think I really grasped its importance.

Your friend is very lucky to get such a cool gift.  Smiley
