This is very small, about five inches across. (I posted a similar one not long ago.) I like to do freeform stuff, making it up as I go. I find that more relaxing and less stressful than trying to follow a pattern and worrying that I'm getting it wrong!

The sides are pink and green, in a sort of checked pattern.

Back and side.

I think it looks lovely! Your stitches are very smooth and even, and your color choices are great.

Thanks for the nice comments. And thanks for saying the stitches are even. I always feel like I'm sort of sloppy and maybe too casual. Cheesy
