Description

My boyfriend and his twin brother really like video games and are kinda geeky. They both think knives and swords are the coolest things! So, for their birthday, I made them swords they could duel with, without hurting anyone :P

I used cotton broadcloth, and put a pool noodle in each, to make them stiff. Then, I pushed stuffing into the pillows, around the pool noodle. I made my boyfriend’s pillow special by embroidering his initials on the “hilt”.

Material Notes

100% cotton broadcloth

    It is a bit, but they’re not, like, the stereotype. They like sports and music and all the normal stuff, too. The geekiness is only a small part of their personality (thank god).They just like to pretend to be awesome assassins, like in their favourite video game. :P

    Haha, for some reason, I find grown geeks who are overly interested in swords and knives kinda lame. Sorryy, no offence, just how I feel about it. But my little brother would love these. =P
