Feeling a little...crabby? Stand-offish? Out of sorts? Cornered? Downright nasty? This fun, snarky little pillow says it all. Place it in a chair nearby, on a shelf, or on your desk as fair warning to stay away. It's really too large, but you could even attach ribbons and hang it around your neck ;) for a really blatant message because, really, who am I to argue?

"BACK OFF" is hand-embroidered in black on natural linen. I paired it with a fantastic, angry black cat on cream print, stitched a row of black rick rack and three red buttons to the linen,and backed it in a grey and black crosshatch print. The pillow is stuffed firmly with poly fiberfill.

12" x 4.5 (30.5 x 11.5cm)

**Please note: this listing is for the "BACK OFF" pillow shown in the first four photos. The last photo shows the "GO AWAY" pillow that may still be available for purchase in the pillows section of my shop, here:

Please spot clean for best results.
