I am participating in a swap on IG. It was to swap either a mini quilt or a pillow cover.
I opted for the pillow cover as I have a LOT of mini quilts.
That meant I had to make a pillow cover.
It is a blind swap meaning you get assigned a person to make/send to but have no idea who has you.
I don't know if my person reads my blog so I won't say more than that right now.
We had to fill out a form with likes, dislikes, etc.
I decided I wanted to make a Hipster Cat pillow cover.
The pattern is by Sewing With Squeak. She has cute patterns!
It is FPP and it went together pretty well.
I used cat breed words for the background and quilted it with straight lines but also outlined the cat.
These were my fabric choices.
I got the top of the head pieced and knew I had made a good choice!
Such a cute little nose!
Stripes made an awesome bow tie. You can see the quilting too.
Here he is in all his aqua glory.
I was trying to decide the border and ended up using the same sparkly fabric
that I used for his glasses.
I had this really cool almost gray suit material that I put on the back.
It reminded me of a man's nice gray suit.
I used the envelope back tutorial from Crazy Mom Quilts to make my back.
Front and back (the top is closer to the actual color.)
I sure hope my partner likes this one. It is totally one I could keep!!!
I have more to share soon.
We had to make another handmade item to send and mine is almost finished.
