The great thing about the 365 Days of T-Shirts Project is that I don’t need to do something complicated every day. Today, I post a few photos that I took while the Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow was being made. Those hands are my mom’s hands. She refused to allow me to video record her doing her thing! Enjoy!
Day 4: Making of Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow
And of course, you can view the completed Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow here.

Don’t get me wrong, I love each of my Threadless tees. However, my Punk Rock Cock T-Shirt suffered from a stretched out collar. As such, it wasn’t so great for wearing anymore. So it sat, unsued, in my drawer for a long time. That was until I came up with the idea to turn Aled Lewis’ classic tee into a one-of-a-kind Threadless throw pillow.
Although I came up with the idea, I have to say thank you to my mom for having the know how to actually make it into a tangible product. Thanks mom!
Having said that, the pillow is super comfy and very stylish – I Love It! I should also note that screen printed tag from the T-Shirt is sewn on to the back of the pillow (I thought that would be cool). We were originally going to use the entire T-Shirt for the pillow cover (minus the green), but the punk rock cock graphic was situated in such a way that it would have been impossible to cut a perfect square without the cock being off-center. So instead, we decided to cut a tight square around the cock and then use green fabric for the rest of the pillow. Doing this added a nice border around the front graphic.

How many of you would be interested in purchasing this pillow? Or maybe would be interested in having a custom Threadless pillow made especially for you for a nominal fee (i.e. you choose a Threadless tee and then I buy it, make it and then ship it to you)? Comment and let me know!
