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”.
100% cotton broadcloth
