A throw pillow is such an easy, fun, inexpensive canvas for creativity.
AND they are so easy to display!
No hammers, nails or shelf space neededjust throw that puppy on your bed or couch and enjoy.

We will be swapping a 12-inch-square, unstuffed throw pillow. Dig through your stash of fabric, ribbon, yarn, thread, buttons, embroidery floss, paints and create a piece of couch art for your partner! Pillows can be sewn, quilted, knitted, crocheted.

This is a 3-point swap AKA: Make and send one 12-inch square pillow and write a one-page, penpal style letter introducing yourself to your partner.
Pillows will be sent UNSTUFFED so you can easily ship in a padded envelope.

I've been looking at ideas since last night and I'm really exited about this! Wondering if maybe we could swap two pillows if I ask my partner?
