Pac-Man Pillow

Pac-Man PillowTattooed, crafty mama Brooke (a.k.a. talking trash & wasting time on Flickr), sewed up this one-of-kind Pac-Love pillow for a Pac-Man loving friend.

Not only does it show the Pac-Couple in their pellet-munching glory, it has some sweet personal touches, like the player’s nickname in the left corner.

I think my favorite part of this, though, is the little trail of heart sequins leading Ms. Pac-Man to her Mister. Too sweet!

Arcade Game Brooches

Arcade Pin“You call that a video game? Back in my day, we didn’t have swanky consoles to play games on. No sir! We had to go to a special place called an arcade. And we didn’t have no fancy things like ‘save points.’ You had three lives, and when they were gone, you had to start over! And did I ever tell you about the time I beat Ms. Pac-Man? It was the night of October 2, 1984…”

Does this sound a bit like you? Then perhaps you should pick up one of MafiosaGrrl’s sweet arcade machine brooches. They’re custom-made from felt, so you can model yours after your favorite retro arcade game.

Pin one to your jacket, and wait for the compliments…or the questions from young’uns who have no idea what the heck you’re wearing.
