For example, I can not paint, or draw at all. My husband had a birthday this weekend, and he really wanted a painting of our home. I am so lucky to have a very talented sister who said she would be happy to do the painting for me.
The painting came out beautiful. He loves it, and so do I. I think it is the perfect present.
I wanted to do something for her in return, so I asked her what she would like. She said she wanted some pillows for a window seat in her new apartment. I asked her what color, and she left it all up to me. She just wanted them to be colorful, and crazy.
I have really been into turquoise and red lately. I had some perfect Alexander Henry, Amy Butler, and Moda fabrics in my stash. I did some more wavy seams, and thought it came out pretty colorful, and crazy.
The back may be my favorite part. I used some more Amy Butler fabric, and a big vintage button. I wanted her to be able to take the cover off, so she could wash it, but I also wanted the back to be just as fun as the front, so she could switch it around if she wanted a change.
