Swift made a needlepoint for her friend with a Drake lyric, which he debuted in the June 10 MTV documentary, 9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran. A Taylor Swift fan site tweeted a photo of the needlepoint masterpiece.

But according to Sheeran, he won't be returning the favor — not because he doesn't want to, but because he doesn't have the same skills as Swift.

"I'm not a very crafty sort of person," he admitted. "She's very crafty."

The craft skills may be a part of her personality, as Sheeran explained, "I know she's 24 but she's a sort of middle-aged woman trapped in a 24-year-old's body. She hangs out with her cat and sews things."

Sheeran was discovered only a few years ago, and has been on a rise to superstardom in a very short amount of time. Although he knows Swift is an old soul in a young body, he knows his soul isn't as easy to pin down.

"My soul age differs from day to day. It can be 8 or 80," he said, adding that his environment decides his age for the day.

Sheeran's new album, x, is out now.
