This was one of the pillow covers I made for my partner CraftyMamaBee in the first round of the Crafted Cushion Cover Swap. I made the scrappy quilted squares based on a design that she had on a pinterest board. They are supposed to have a random, wonky look to them. She also had "whimsical woodland" as a theme, so I used the awesome bird fabric that I received in a scrap pack to tie it in.



I also decided to do something for the backside, so I used some crazy big buttons to close it, a vintage mushroom printed fabric, and a velvet ribbon from a second-hand shop:

Thanks a bunch, everyone! I really loved seeing this pillow take on a mind of its own. The concept sketch was radically different front the final product, but I think everyone was happy Smiley

LimeRiot, it would flatter me if you pinned it Wink
