today i finished my gifts for my secret partner for the savvy seasons swap.
i made an insulated pad to put a pan or pot on, a round fabric basket and a little quilted pouch.
at first it was very hard to come up with any idea at all because i totally had set my mind on christmas - i probably just couldn´t imagine that someone would NOT want any christmassy stuff. serves me right and made me think.
and so i came up with these.
to keep the fall theme clean and not too kindergarten-like i went for simple designs as circles and triangles plus strong colors like the Kona Cotton in coal and the different orange prints.
however, those three items won´t be used together so i chose different background solids - hopefully my partner will at least like one of the greys or the linen.
here are the backsides of the pad and the pouch:
even more reduced, i like both designs very much.
so now there´s not much to do but to post these gifts tomorrow and hope that my partner will like them.
i had lots of fun making them and now i can´t wait for the (most certainly christmassy!!) item i will get :-)
