Lay About With Your Valentine


Don't have a valentine of your own? Or not 100 percent happy with the one you do have? Why not whip yourself up a custom one! Erika Kern gives free instructions here on making this little fellow. You can even put your custom requests into with the stuffing as well. And I’m sure you could do a bit of customising in the looks and sexuality department...

If you like the way Erika thinks, check out her store, My Imaginary Boyfriend and maybe purchase a cushion for you and your valentine to laze about on.

What…one cushion’s not enough! You could make sweet music together on a record cushion from friends Esther and Shelley of Toggle. They combine crocheting with wool felt and embroidery in their unique pieces.

Don't mind being watched? Then throw in a screenprinted Victorian Mary cushion from Common Decency.


And to show your valentine that you’re an arty type, add a cute Paint by Numbers cushion from Nora Jane onto the pile.

The Valentine guy looks eerily like my Valentine back in the Seventies!! He looks pretty good now, so he has aged well.

Alright ladies, back off, that fella is mine! A great, quirky Valentine's Day find. Now if only he could use metallic book adhesives, I'd be set.

Hey Chrisy, thanks for stopping by to see how I was doing! I have to admit..I didn't eat that whole lemon pepper chicken...only half! By the way, these pillows are great! I've never seen anything like them. :)

Hi Chrisy,
Some really great finds here. That paint-by-numbers cushion is right on the money. I think I had a kit just like that when I was little. I can't wait for them to become popular again.
