I made this for Smileyyogini, for a personal swap. It was a bit challenging, mainly due to the thickness of the upholstery fabric I used.

The pieces were fairly small, so I adjust the pattern a bit so that I could patchwork it - which works because Smiley likes patchwork! Yay!

Did you have to use a special needle?  I have a lot of samples and need to do something with them...
