Homespooled

 
A little over a year ago I made a Batman Tissue Box Cover.  It was pretty popular in my house, until my sister came from out of town and wanted it so bad I gave it to her.  Then I was left with boring Kleenex.  Some people even asked why my Kleenex was no longer cool? With a craft show coming up at the end of this month, I decided to pop out a few of those Batman covers to sell.  But I also wanted to have some covers for girls (not all girls are into Batman...I know, right?).  

At the spring craft show earlier this year, I had this cushion for sale.  It was white with a pink and purple owl on it and my daughter (a.k.a. craft show assistant salesperson) adored it.  Actually I had two of them with those exact colours.  I promised her that if there was one left at the end of the weekend, she could have it. Sadly (for her), they sold quickly, as did all of the other owl cushions I'd made.  Apparently, I'm not the only one who likes owls...

 
 
A couple of weeks ago, my allergies came back full force.  So I figured if I was going to be spending so much time with my tissue box, it may as well get a little dressed up...

Well lucky for you, needlepoint on a plastic canvas is definitely NOT hard.  And as far as I'm concerned, this was absolutely worth doing.  I felt like a total nerd starting this, and some of you may say that I AM, in fact, a nerd (you are probably right).  Despite that fact, I think this project is freaking rad.
