Handmade Pac-man geek love pillow | CRAFT INSPO

I am in the process of making another one of my Pac-man pillows for an anniversary gift. 

The more I make these the more I love how fun they are. I also need to make one for a friend who has a wedding coming up. I think I will put both the couple's name on it with the marriage date like I have for the previous anniversary ones 💘

 You may have already seen my retro arcade pillow on the Geek Crafts Blog which it was featured on last year.

This gamer pillow was all hand-sewn, excluding the actual pillowcase and the arcade 8-bit maze. The power pellets are sequin hearts where Ms. Pacman is chasing Pac-man (my favourite bit) The rest are all gold sequins and all the ghosts have googly eyes.

The stitch word embroidery is my friend's name who is the player & with her birth year as the score... yes I think of these little things, details are everything 😊

I used craft felt for the maze linework, ghosts and Pacman. This was all hand cut and half was handsewn. The Maze I sewed with a sewing machine
This is the type of craft I enjoy doing, a bit of an old-school classic design with a little twist. 

For some reason, hand sewing calms me and always makes me smile when I have finished, even if it has taken me longer than I expected and things may have not worked out how I wanted, I may have thrown the project a few times or had to unpick a major error. It's what makes it more rewarding when you have finished the project and not given up 100 times like you really wanted to.


I hope this has inspired you to do some unique crafting of your own
