I’m takin’ the tours, I’m wreckin’ the land I keep it hardcore because it’s Coleman!

The dad of the Hanukkah pillow recipients liked their bolsters so much that his wife decided to commission one for him as well.

The love for all things Cincinnati runs in the family. From major leagues to the minors to the college and high school teams….

The wedges on the Indian Acres are from the Bar Mitzvah yarmulkes of the two sons. Not seen but also definitely included is the daughter’s Bat Mitzvah covering.

The Basset Hound was embroidered on a towel, the Who Dey is the Bengals cheer.  That particular item is a hand-painted tie.  The striped piping is from long johns that were worn while skiing.

Put on your yarmulke, here comes Hanukkah. It’s so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah.

These bolster pillows were given to siblings on their first night of Hannukah,  The brother followed his sister to the University of Michigan where they are both Wolverines.

As usual, we were able to incorporate not just t shirts and sweatshirts, but also a Bengals fleece scarf, a silk tie, a potholder  and a satin yarmulke. Both kids were very busy as it was difficult to include all the shirts.

The yarmulke was from the daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  The seams of the curved panels were undone and moved to 2 groups of 3 panels each.  We were then able to incorporate the polo shirt of the overnight camp that both kids attended as campers and later as staff.  The image doesn’t show it as the light was too strong but the other white triangle was from the lining of the yarmulke which had been stamped with the Bat Mitzvah girl’s name and date of the ceremony.

The son’s quilt also used a camp staff shirt as well as the tie from his Bar Mitzvah.  The tie was in an actual tie shape in one end of the bolster and as piping for the entire bolster.
