It was a success!
Lori and I host the Modern She Made Swap and this round is just finishing up. There are dozens of talented projects by so many wonderful ladies. Pop on over and take a peek - lots of talent!
You are to make your partner a project of your choice, but following her guidelines (based on her taste, her colors and a few ideas) but this round it must also include a triangle.
My partner this round was Tiffany of The Crafty Fox fame. Little did she know, I was stalking her back in October. You see, she became one of my "I've met her in real life and she's awesome" friends from the blogging universe when I met her at Sewing Summit. We had a couple meals and classes together so I was noticing her style and her likes and dislikes.
So....this pillow was made just for her, using a mutual friend's pattern. You know Diane right? She's the super talented pattern designer. I used her Scrap Attack pattern but took out the outside and stitched it right up for Tiffany.
It was my first pillow ever and I would like to make more pillows. I would have never considered a pillow, since I have never made one, but she put that pillows were her #1 choice so it made me venture out and try it. That is one of the wonderful things about bees and swaps - stepping out of your comfort zone.
And just to keep it real, this is a 14 x 14 pillow cover, but I had bought a 20 x 20 pillow form, which didn't quite work, so....this pillow is stuffed with bath towels and socks - so know with a real pillow form, it will stand up a little bit taller and straighter.
