LadybugsAndBumbleBees and I were partnered in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap, and one of her requests was a pillow cover gor her daughter. Her daughter has a gecko named Rainbow, so I knew just what to do! I printed out a gecko outline, sewed together strips to make the colors of the rainbow, then attached it to make the applique and cut it out. I also sewed the raimbow colors into the strips on the sides for added detail. I can't remember if I sewed the pillow cover then added the applique or the other way around. Anyway, I added the applique, and used my Cricut for the "Rainbow is my name and gecko is my game." Inthought that would be perfect for a teen. I had a lot of fun making her swap package, but this was my favorite item!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That's awesome! My best friend in High School had a pet iguana she named Peeve, so she could have a pet Peeve!

Awesome, you did a great job!
