Craft Swap

I participated in a craft swap recently. Well, it was more like a craft round-robin swap. My sister-in-law hosted it, and coincidentally a few of my family members participated. I had a my Aunt Elaine, who is a Stampin' Up representative and lives down the road from my parents out in the countryside of Tennessee. We each filled out a short series of questions, and then our answers were given to whoever is making a craft for us. On hers, Aunt Elaine mentioned liking chickens and roosters as well as the colors blue, green, and brown. She also expressed a desire to redecorate her living room. I took all of that information and came up with this cute throw-pillow sham.

I incorporated a couple of her favorite colors and love of roosters, and thought that I would give her a starting point to re-do her living room if she'd like to use it for some inspiration.

The backside has a button on it to keep it closed. In hindsight, I probably should have made the button hole going the other direction, but it's not too big of a deal.

I still really like how it turned out. What do you think? If I were to make and sell these, what animal silhouette would you be interested in having?


  1. I seriously adore this. I'm on it!

  2. redecorating is always fun---THIS makes it that much more awesome! Love this design =)

    1. Thanks! I love redecorating too. An old, frumpy living room is my favorite kind of blank canvas. :)

  3. I love this! Can't wait to see the pillows you make for me!
