Happy Father's Day to all of those Dad's out there! I hope they're having a great time fishing, golfing, relaxing and opening up all sorts of thoughtful gifts! My own wonderful Dad was gifted with this embroidered pillow made by yours truly. :)
I embroidered the faces of my siblings and I to remind him of the children he has that love him so dearly.
My Dad is a rough and tough cowboy (literally, he's a dairy farmer) with few needs or wants and is rather impossible to shop for. (Give him a bed, a hot meal and an old truck and he's happy.) An embroidered pillow isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind if you know my Dad, but he loves his children and he loves to lay his head on something while he falls asleep on the couch at night...so why not combine the two?
The best part? This zippered closure isn't talented sewing on my part...it's the fly of an old skirt! I just cut and sewed it strategically and stuffed the pillow through the fly. Yay!
Happy Father's Day Dad! I love you! :)
