a project for the hockey fan
Hey everyone! Here is just one of the projects that has been keeping me busy for the last 2 weeks. The other one I can not share quite yet.
This project started in my mind about 1 year ago. My son plays minor hockey and every year we have a “home tournament”. We also have a silent auction table where we as parents and the businesess in our community donate items to raise money. I come from a family of hockey lovers, my brothers, my kids…so I had this idea. Thanks to my brother Eric B who attended the Washington Capitals vs. Minnesota Wild game this past October and met up with his friend #16 of the Washington Capitals – Eric Fehr. Eric Fehr is one of Winklers NHL hockey heroes and he was generous enough to autograph a piece of fabric for me! SO much appreciated and makes this project that much more special too.
Here is the end result.
I used techniques like zig zag top stitching and heat and bond lite to accomplish the hockey jersey feeling to my project. I dropped this body pillow off at the arena yesterday and even the Dad’s want to win this thing!
So here’s hoping that this pillow will bring in LOTS of money for the Novice hockey team inWinkler MB.
