One part of weekly challenge done
Good day lovely people!!!
So, as you see in this post's title, the "Tea time" pillow my mother asked me to make for a friend of hers is already packed and sent off with the best courier man (my dad) to the (hopefully) happy recipient.
Would you like to see how it turned out?
I think it turned out OK, I really like the color combination, and the patterns combination. The pillow form measures approximately 45X45 cm (17''x17''), and the cushion's finished size is 42X42 cm (16,5''x16,5''). On the back side there is a little tag (Natural Style Handmade)..ohhh I love those little details... If only I could take better pictures so you could see it better!!!
And as for the packing I opened up a big paper bag from IKEA, and I re-sew it from the opposite side and attached with two buttons one of my fabric easter eggs and a little tag saying thank you for caring... I specifically asked my mother not to touch or tear off the bag!!She's a bit more traditional...you know...
What do you think?? I know that I should have better pictures... but there was not enough light... these days the weather here is really bad.. it's like March again :(
Now, off to the next part of the challenge the Sprocket pillows !!! I'm so anxious about this... it seems to me like a huge project. I don't even know if I have enough fabric, how I will make the color/pattern combinations... ooohhh I'll breath in breath out, breath in breath out.. and I'll jump right to it!!!
Hope you have a great day!!
p.s. I forgot the most important part!!! How silly am I!!!
