What It Is
Kids can stitch and knot a totally cool text-speak pillow with the Pillow Text—OMG kit. One side of this soft fleece pillow says "OMG" while the other says "=D", which is the symbol for a big smiley face in text-speak. Using the needle and colored floss, stitch the small felt shapes to the two text bubbles. Then stitch the text bubbles to the two fleece circles. The felt shapes and text bubbles have pre-punched holes to make it easy for kids to know where to stitch. When you're done stitching, tie the fleece circles together using each one's pre-cut ends. Leave a small gap and fill the pillow with stuffing, and then knot the pillow closed. Pillow Text—OMG includes two fleece pillow shapes, stuffing, eight felt shapes, four colors of embroidery floss, a needle, and instructions. Additional Pillow Text themes include LOL and LUV. Each is sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun and easy-to-do activity for the young texter in your family. This serves as a bright and colorful piece of room décor in a child's room.
Who It’s For
Pillow Text—OMG is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
This project took us two hours to complete. The instructions were easy to follow, but it seemed like there wasn't enough stuffing to fill the entire pillow. Our pillow didn't look as packed as the pillow on the box.
