Gift for Son #2

Hello! How was your weekend? We had a wonderful time. On Friday evening we celebrated ‘Sinterklaas’, with lots of laughs and a lot of presents. Everyone has been spoiled with the most wonderful gifts.

The bag for his tripod I showed last Friday, was appreciated very much by my son. For son #2 I made something completely different. He has a kind of daybed in his room, where he spends a lot of time, either gaming or reading, or just lying there, with all his pillows around him. And he doesn’t only like computer games, but also old-fashioned board games. So how about a game of Scrabble?

Lots of tiles and of course a board:

Made into a pillow!


The ‘tiles’ were stitched onto the ‘board’.

Maybe it seems odd that the letter- and word worth tiles are in Dutch, and the words put on the ‘board’ are in English, but that is how we play the game lately; for practicing English vocabulary, it is a great game to play and we both find it very hard to do.


The words used are either describing my son, or encouring words we all need to hear sometimes.

Son was very happy with his pillow, the only thing he would have liked more, was if the tiles weren’t stitched on, so that he could actually play Scrabble!

Groetjes, Dorien

Jeetje, wat origineel en mooi gemaakt! Dat is nog een aardig gepruts om de letterstenen netjes erop te krijgen denk ik zo :-). Ik kan me wel voorstellen dat je zoon er blij mee was (en misschien wat extra letters met een klittenband achterkantje voor de Kerst??)
Groetjes, Nelleke
