after making an elephant pillow for a friend's birthday back in august, i knew i wanted to sew up another cute pillow for a friend whose birthday is in october, actually this friday.
this was really quick to make, just 2 squares and an invisible zip. and i think it looks really cute and it incorporates 2 things my friend loves: photography and typography. she also collects vintage cameras. the fabric is from fabric.com: Times of Your Life Cameras Blue and Moda Odds & Ends Junk Drawer Rosebud Red (which is out of stock on fabric.com at the moment, but can also be found on etsy)
i love how these fabrics ended up working together. some of the cameras on the front pick up the red color from the back.
i can't wait to give it to her, and i hope she likes it! what are your thoughts on giving handmade gifts? love it? loathe it?
