Where's The Remote?

Seriously, how many times have you heard that question? 

This was always the dreaded question at my parents' house, because somebody always walked off with the remote. And there would be hell to pay if you were that somebody! 

I saw this idea forever ago, before I started blogging, and I feel bad because I honestly can't remember where I saw it, but the idea was pretty simple and after I started sewing, I remembered it and thought, 'That would make a great gift for my Dad!' 


Behold, the remote pillow!!!

(I know, I'm a genius...just kidding) 


I put "Grandpa's Chair" on the pillow because my Dad currently has as many grandkids as he does kids (that and this way I can tease him about being an old man. Just kidding!) 


I know it's not quite Christmas just yet, so I probably shouldn't be posting this, but since my Dad doesn't really use the computer, I feel pretty safe in sharing this with everyone. I hope he likes it, especially if it really does help keep track of the remotes.

  1. Coming from someone who loses the remotes on a daily basis (even without watching tv, i seem to "lose" it!) - this is GENIUS!

    One teeny tiny flaw... things fall out of pockets. The remote should have a string attaching it to the pillow! hehehe :P

    Hope you guys had a wonderful christmas and here's to a happy new years!!! Cheers!

  6. This is so useful and so needed at my house.
    Nobody watches TV until the hubs gets home, but the remote is never where he left it - according to him anyway.
    This is an amazing idea!
