This pillow is a birthday gift for my children's godfather. He enjoys Japanese animation and toys and such. I brought the embroidery kit home and my husband felt that it was just perfect for his friend. The fabric that I bought for the pillow edge is from Andover Fabrics. It was fun to work on. It's the sort of thing that I enjoy but it doesn't really fit with our home decor. It will settle in nicely at its new home where it will fit right in!
