This Craft is a great one for a Valentines present for the light-sleeping man in your life. Thats exactly what I made mine for last year and it was a big hit with the Gentleman!
I originally saw the craft at this lovely little blog Roubidou posted here complete with tutorial, although unfortunately the link is no longer working. So, for your crafting pleasure I found another good tutorial here at Sew Tara. The biggest difference from this one and hers is the piping.
The key to making this for the men-folk is to swap out the cute-sy fabrics for more gentleman-ly ones and get creative with the design. For mine I made a stencil of a rhino that I found online (image after the jump if you’re interested) and embroidered the word “Charging” … get it? charging? because when you’re sleeping you’re “charging”?? eh?? … Well it still makes me giggle anyway. 🙂
This was really one of my first times embroidering words, next time I know to use MUCH less embroidery floss!
