Sentimental Pillow

So, there is a reason I post so infrequently here--kids' sports on the weekend!  It is non-stop, which leaves little time for home projects for Bob and me.  But, I'm not complaining.  I love it--it's our social life.

Before we went to a Mariners game the other night, I quickly made this pillow with a black fabric marker, stencils and canvas fabric.  I didn't worry about if the letters were perfectly spaced or straight--I'm embracing the homemade look!  I have no choice--I only had a few minutes. 

This quote is a text that Bob sent me when we were dating.  We were neighbors when we met.  I purposely left little space on the fabric to sew because I wanted the lettering to cover the entire front.  On the back, I put our wedding date.

This is sweet, meaningful project that costs almost nothing (under $10 total) and can be done quickly.  I might make some more with other quotes I love.  I could probably make a bunch with all the hilarious things my kids have said.  How about you?  Any favorite suggestions?
