Lord of the Rings Book Pillow

Hey guys! So I started selling these book pillows on my Etsy store, and the first one I ever made was The Hobbit. I also made a bigger Fellowship of the Ring pillow too!

IMG_1333Tadaa! Now that I think on it though, I wish I had made it just 1 big book rather than cut up up into Fellowship, Two Towers, and Return of the King. I haven’t made the other 2 yet, and I don’t know if I will. I think I’m going to keep the design, but change the title to like “the complete series” so it’s like all the books are in it, rather than just the first.

So I made it, then listed it on my Etsy, and it sold within 24 hours! I was sad to see it go, because we had so little time together, but I hope it went to a good home!

The inside has the first page from FOTR and a “No admittance except on party business” sign!

While I sold the first one, I have more fabric for another in the mail and I should have that by this weekend!

So, that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing with my life, making book pillows. The Harry Potter ones sell fast!

I made them as decorative pillows for your home, but I’m waiting for someone to use it as a ring bearer pillow in their wedding! I may be waiting for a long time, but I think it’s a cute idea.

That’s all I’ve got, off to sew more books!
