One of the Flickr swaps I signed up for was the Scrappy Pincushion Swap and yesterday we got our partner info. This is a secret swap so I can't reveal who I'm making for and I don't know who is making for me. On the sign up sheet we were invited to list our favourite movie, as possible further inspiration for our partner. Now, I don't really have one fave movie, so I picked Back to the Future, although I really cannot even begin to imagine how anyone might interpret that into a pincushion design! Partner, if you're reading this, please don't worry about that, I'm not making a movie themed cushion either! Obviously, I can't really say what my partner's fave movie is, but let's just say that it's completely contradictory to her likes & dislikes, so I shall be sticking to something a little more conventional.
I had a fun session playing around with fabrics this morning and these are two designs I came up with as possible contenders. I think I shall probably end up making quite a few before I make a final decision. It's fun to wait and see if your partner comments on one of your photos so, hopefully, that will give me some idea if I'm heading in the right direction!
