I made this for my son who was headed off to college. The center squares were stenciled with fabric paint using stencils I cut by hand-which took a whole lot longer than I thought it would! These are all symbols from my son's favorite sci-fi movies, books, websites and tv shows.
I was worried this would be too flagrantly geeky to have in a dorm room so I made the other side just plain red. I'm happy to see that my son has it on his dorm room bed with the super geeky side up! Making this was therapy for me. It was a good distraction from the anxiety that was brewing before move in day. It's such a drastic change to go from homeschooling to having a child away at college.I miss my sci-fi movie watching buddy but am happy to say he seems to be doing great at school so far!
