everything looks cuter in felt.

My boyfriend is an accountant. Boring. He likes to talk about boring things and purchase things that I can't justify buying. One of those objects is an iPad. He had absolutely no reason to buy one….so I talked him out of it, because I had this up my sleeve. An iPad pillow! It may not be able to log into facebook, but it does look pretty cute in his room.

It is so difficult to buy for a guy. It is also difficult to craft for a guy. He just passed the CPA exam and I kinda missed getting something for his birthday so, I thought this was a pretty clever gift.

It came together pretty easily. Each "app" was a 2×2 square, all as close to the actual design as possible. (The second picture is for size reference).

Each app was sewn onto a large piece of off-white felt. Then I attached the black band (which even has a "power button"!) The back of the pillow would have been black, but I didn't have enough, so I went with his favorite color instead.

I tried to make the simple apps, ones with not too much detail but also added ones that mean something to us as a couple. Since we don't live close, we facetime quite a bit and the calendar has #8 for our anniversary (so now he won't forget =p).

Photobooth even flips up! The final touch was putting it in a white box with the apple logo on the front. Sometimes I get carried away with details.

The recipient was very happy with it, and he was so sweet when he said he couldn't believe I took the time out of my sewing to make something for him. I love when people appreciate what you do for them!
