Recently I've fallen in love with the Ombre trend, and then with transitioning color itself.  I love the subtle changes of color.  Using a single transitioning scribble design, and a whole bunch of pretty colors, well, you could go on forever...

This is actually one design repeated twice with graduated colors. I thought a nice long bolster pillow would be the perfect canvas for a continuing gradient design Smiley

It's sooo simple to make, its basically just a tube tied at the ends, so it's really easy to make a whole bunch and change out as the mood strikes.

Looooove it! I'm crazy about anything ombre/variegated myself. Your design is just great and the pillow is a perfect showcase for it.

In the end, only kindness matters.
