I made these pillows for the halloween swap earlier this year, but I wanted to share here too, 'cause I'm kinda proud of the result Cheesy

The embroidery is after the pattern Punkin Girl by Andrea Zuill (http://zuill.us/andreablog/)

My partner loves fall, so I made the back of the pillows more autumny neutral, with metal snap buttons



Hope you like Cheesy

Thank you Cheesy It was a bit hard to let them go, especially as the boyfriend wanted to keep them! But I know they ended up in a good home Cheesy

Don't you sometimes wish you had an elf that could duplicate what you made for someone else?  Cheesy

I always say I am going to make myself one and never get around to it!

Definitely! I'm having that problem right now where I made something awesome for a swap that I really want but I hated making it so much that I will never ever ever do it again O_O
