Hey, guys!  This little piece has been taking up all my time for the last week!  It's a Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Pillow.  It's on 18 count aida.  Not sure exactly how long it took, but it was waaaay too long.  Check it out.





This shot shows you a little more of what the scale is.  It's about 8" by 6".



The back.  The fabric is from a worn-out fitted sheet that I ripped up for various scrap fabric.  I think the blue really complements the logo.



The stitch.

A few problems:  I forgot to wash it the stitch before I turned it into a pillow.  I forgot to sign it until I had nearly sewn it closed.  I think I should've put a little more stuffing in it.  I think I should've changed the logo to say "PILLOW" instead of "BEER."  Oh, well.

Hope you like it, and thanks for your comments!

I <3 PBR...almost as much as I <3 your PBR pillow.

This is a really fun project and well worth the time you spent on it.

Thanks for the kudos, guys!  I live in Richmond, Virginia, where PBR is king because of all the hipsters.  For the record, I'm not a hipster, but I enjoy a PBR when the budget requires a more frugal approach to drinking.

I love! I think it looks great, especially as far as it saying beer instead of pillow. from the thumbnail I thought it was an old shirt you had turned into a pillow, it is so cool looking!

I love this in all ways....don't change a thing! That little pillow made me fondly remember my Dad, a longtime PBR fan!

Great work!
