My husband is a baseball fanatic, a Boston Red Sox fanatic or if the Red Sox aren’t playing he is a fan of anyone who is beating the New York Yankees. He loves everything to do with the Boston Red Sox.

I wanted to get him some Boston Red Sox bedding but soon realized that once I had it shipped to Canada it would cost too much, for us. So I decided to get creative and make him some items. I am currently working on a larger item for him but had to take a break from it and do something else. So while taking a break from the larger project, I came up with a smaller project to do. I decided to make him a couple Boston Red Sox pillows.

Now in all fairness our 9 year old daughter made the pillow for him, it was just my idea. So here is what we did.

We went to the local Wal Mart and purchased a premade pillow form. I am sure we could have made one but I felt it just as easy to go buy one. After we had our pillow form we found an old Red Sox t-shirt that was no longer being worn. We took a pair of scissors and cut the sleeves off the shirt as well as the neck/ shoulder area. Then we put the pillow form inside the t-shirt, we had to sew the seams of the shirt to make it tighter before we put it on the pillow form. After the shirt was on the pillow form how we wanted it, we cut the unsewn sides into strips, so that we could tie the front piece and back piece of the shirt together. After they were all cut, we knotted together a strip from the front piece and a strip from the back piece.

The finished product!♡♡
