Tired of keeping your high-contrast selfies and manicure photos confined to your cellphone? Thanks to a service called Stitchagram, you can turn those perfectly filtered square images into throw pillows, tote bags, and coin purses to decorate your home and accessorize your outfits. Stitchagram prompts you to log into your Instagram account to create a photo collage, and then prints it on the product of your choice. I initially cringed at the thought of Instagram creeping into the home decor arena, but I think a pillow covered in fun pictures could be a great gift for someone going away to college, and an Instagrammed waffle tote bag would certainly earn you some hipster cred in the vegan brunch scene. What do you guys think? Would you ever buy a product decorated with your Instagram photos? [via Laughing Squid]
It’s waaaayyyy too cold to leave the house this weekend, so make the most of your indoor time by transforming an old sweater into a cozy new pillow cover. The process is surprisingly easy, and when you’re done you can cuddle up with the fruits of your labor and take a nice, long nap. [Brassy Apple]
Well, it looks like it’s going to be another long, cold, single winter with plenty of extra room in my bed for a Dream Man Arm Pillow. I’ll take it in Black, obviously. He looks like he might also have been goth in high school, so, we have that in common. I can imagine our life together: he won’t complain if I want to read Rainer Maria Rilke poems aloud, or if I want to watch a “RuPaul’s Drag Race” marathon, or if I’m crushing his arm. Actually, winter is starting to sound really great. [$24.99, Overstock]
