What do you get for a computer geek's 40th birthday?  I spent a few days thinking about the appropriate gift and when I walked into the "Man Cave" the other evening, where my husband was watching TV, I found the solution.  

I have many sizes of pillow forms but none all the same so instead I just made some.   Squares of muslin were cut to size.  Two pieces were stitched together around the perimeter, leaving an opening for filling.  After stuffing, the opening was stitch closed.  Letters were printed onto Steam-a-Seam and black fabric, cut out and ironed onto background fabric, then I stitched around each letter to hold them in place.  After the letters were added, the pillow cases were made with a pocket opening at the back - ready to pop in the pillow form.  Done!
