Designer Noortje de Keijzer has knitted a life-sized boyfriend pillow for people missing their partner — or just another person — to snuggle with in bed. ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ is a cuddly cushion shaped like a man that can be placed in different poses and customized with various accessories.
The designer writes:
My Knitted Boyfriend is a cushion with a story. A cushion with a personality. A cushion to kiss! Or, well… to cuddle, to caress, to hug, and to smile with. Because this man is always happy. And he is flexible as well. He will have a mustache if you prefer mustaches. He will wear glasses if you prefer glasses. He likes to sit on your floor, on your couch or at you dinner table. But most of all he likes to lay down next to you in bed. With your head on his chest and his arms wrapped around you. This way you will never feel alone ever again. With this man you can be sure, he will never leave you.
There are a number of knitted accessories available for the knitted boyfriend, including moustaches, beards, glasses, watches, bow-ties, and tattoos. You can check out the man-shaped cushion in the video below:
