The Theme is Spring!
So, I have to admit that I am failing miserably at my resolution to only do one swap at a time, but truthfully, I am having a lot of fun. In addition to Pillow Talk 6 (and maybe a couple of other swaps) I am playing in Potholder Pass 10. The theme is "Spring". How did I do? These do say "Spring" to me.
My partner asked for blue, lime and orange. I had lots of fun creating this one, although it was a bit tedious. Again, the buttons aren't very practical, but it just *needed* something. I think this one is my favorite. My sewing machine just hates insulbrite. I fight with it every time, so binding is always a challenge. I haven't used it in awhile, and forgot, so I cut my binding just a bit narrower than I should have to make this easy, so I fought with it all the way around. Overall, though, I am satisfied.
The really fun thing is that both of these were made entirely of scraps. The thrifty part of me just loves it when I can say that.
So, partner, Happy Spring!
