This is what I discovered after reaching out to a friend for some advice on product packing. She is a design guru and I needed some design work but wouldn't want to just assume she'd do it for free - and yet I don't have capital to hire out for the task either.
Enter in my skills. I offered to sew her up something substantial for the opportunity to work with her and she happily agreed. What an amazing journey it was! Custom orders once again challenge my color palate and I walk into something unexpected and delightful.
The pattern is inspired from Retro Flowers Quilt by The Sometimes Crafter. Although I went the easy route and machine appliqued around the petals. I did background quilting in a cross weave pattern and simply bound it in black.
She took my toddler crayons to another level and I made her a table runner you can place hot dishes on! Win - Win!
So who would you love to barter with?
