I just mailed off a custom order of some tawashi hearts in country colors. I probably would not have thought of doing these color combinations together, but I think they coordinate very nicely together. That is one reason I really like doing custom orders—I get some input from another person that gives me some neat new color combinations or other new ideas. The pattern for these hearts can be found in a pattern set.
I have also been working on a new bird pattern to go along with my first tawashi bird. This red bird is my first attempt. I have also made another one with a slightly bigger head, which seems a bit more in proportion to me. I put my first bird set in my Etsy shop last night and hope to have another ready soon. I started making one in pink today while waiting for my preschooler to be ready to be picked up from school. That color is inspired by my preschooler’s quilt, which has pink and yellow birds on it.
On the alphabet letter pattern front, I have managed to type up four of the last six patterns. Tonight I hope to figure out which of those need some step by step photos and send out at least one to one of my wonderfully awesome pattern testers.
