Ironman Pillows

Here is Momo's pillow - I love this one! It's white corrugated chenile, dark pink calico cotton, and light pink fake fur. The back is the dark pink. I can't see too many of the guys wanting the little balls around the edges, but heck - as Momo says... "Pink is an Attitude". Momo - send me your address and I'll mail it to you tomorrow. And again - thank you so much for your donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. mmmwwaaaaahh!!!

Hi everybody - OK, I made two pillows so far. They are 20" x 20" and 95% feather/ 5% down. The top one has white corduroy on the front, and muted plaid flannel on the back. The lower one has the same grey flannel on the front, and is all white corduroy on the back. The trim is black cotton "roping".

I decided not to charge a fee for them, but rather just ask that you make a donation to my girlfriend Micki's Team-in-Training site:

Every now and then I blog about my ski coach who is battling follicular lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkins. John is Micki's husband. Please take a look at her site even if you don't want a pillow. The money goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which funnels money into research for a cure as well as patient aid.

But if you DO want a pillow, just let me know after you donated and I will send one out to you. Please specify foam or feathers. If you have any particular colors, details you'd like me to customize yours with, let me know! I have access to zillions of fabrics at the outlet here in town... or if you want to send me your own fabric, I can do that, too. The postage and materials (pillow, trim, fabric, thread & needles - I don't know why but they break a lot) are somewhere around $25, so if you can donate at least that much, it'd be great.
