bend-the-rules sewing swap: what i sent


A few months ago, I participated in a Bend-the-Rules Sewing Swap for a pair of pillowcases, based on a pattern found in Amy Karol's book, Bend-the-Rules Sewing


Mary Ann, the owner of the Etsy shop Rumpos (which features playscapes, totes, and household items), was my swap partner, and these are the pillowcases that I made for her.


The front of each pillowcase features a square of flowered fabric from a vintage pillowcase that I cut up and embroidered with dark blue floss.
The gray backing of each pillow is actually from the tablecloths used at my August wedding. I added yellow piping to the back flaps to tie everything together.
