{lou}bee pillows

for our {lou}bee swap in november i had cara. i was inspired by these rocky mountian puzzle blocks, and thought they would be perfect for my munki loving friend. it was fun to pick out fabrics for this pillow. i actually used a necklace i knew cara loved for the color inspiration. i had the back dot picked out and while we were on a retreat heard her say it might be her favorite fabric ever. win for me! 
18"pillow
fabric: DS katie jump rope, chicopee, flea market fancy; heather ross munki; comma pin dot

her girls are star wars fans {as well as my boys}, which makes for a great excuse to get a bit of star wars fabrics in the collection. this pouch is a pattern in patchwork please. i really like the shape of it, although the lining is hand stitched in, which takes a while. i'm pleased with their turnout.
for dec {which turned into january} i had jessica. jessica is a cat lover. it was a great chance to try elizabeth's cat block tutorial. they were super easy and fun to put together.
this little cat bag/thread catcher was also in patchwork please.
