Coolest pillowcase ever.
My girlfriend is a professional costume designer, so occasionally she surprises me with some cool homemade item that’s geek related. I’ve got three to show off today. The above image is of a pillowcase she made for me out of some fabric you can currently find at your favorite big box [...]
