Kitty Swap

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.
