I'm crafty.

I decorated the living room of my apartment with a rock 'n' roll theme. It's heavy on the Sleater-Kinney, so I had the brilliant idea to turn Sleater-Kinney t-shirts into pillows for my couch. Of course I couldn't bear to cut up my own shirts, so I solicited a donation from a kind person on the S-K mailing list.

They turned out really freakin' awesome, and weren't that terribly difficult to make. (Which is a good thing because it turns out I retained absolutely nothing about sewing from that costume design class I took for my theater minor in college.) If anyone wants to know how to make their own I can try to put together a post with instructions. (Or I might be willing to do some for people if they don't have access to a sewing machine.)

The white pillow on the left has the same black fabric as the one on the right for its back. This shirt wasn't my favorite design, but it works really great as a pillow.

These just use the same shirt fabric for the back. The monkey one says 'Sleater-Kinney', and the bad one is plain.
