A while ago I joined For the Love of Solids on Flickr. It's my first swap in a reeaally long time and was a ton of fun. We had to make make our partner one large item and one small item using only solids. Let me tell you it was harder than I thought.
This pillow cover has already been mailed off to my partner. It took me forever to decided what to make her, I tried to use the colours she mentioned and poured over her inspiration mosaic and photo stream trying to figure out what she'd like. I settled on the simple plus pattern because it tends to make the fabrics the star of the show without being boring.
While I like the pillow I love this little pouch. It's my first attempt at English paper piecing and I think the hexies turned out really well. I used this tutorial for a make-up bag but I imagine my partner can use it for whatever she likes. I stuffed it with a few other goodies and along with the pillow cover put it in the mail last week. Now I'm waiting and hoping she likes everything.
