This is my first post! (Not my first craft, though)  I run a tumbler that is specifically keyed towards Nick Cave. I got to thinking that I would like to make something craft related, regarding the man. So I printed off a profile picture of Nick from The Birthday Party time period. Then I cut it out. Traced in on some black fabric that had been treated with heat and bond. I positioned it where I wanted it and proceeded to iron it on. The tricky part? Appliqueing all around Nick's hair. I did it though, and then embroidered "The Birthday Party" in red. I sewed some zebra print for a backing and stuffed it with fiberfill. Ta dah! A one of a kind pillow.

That's really cool. I admit to not being as big a Nick Cave fan as you are (I love the song "Loverman" but haven't heard anything else. I'm afraid it wouldn't live up to how awesome that song is.), but I like what you did with the pillow. Did you machine stitch around the hair or do it by hand? Either way, awesome pillow. You know what? You've inspired me to go listen to some more Nick Cave. It's past time.
