The Texas Rangers won American League title. My side of the family has been bugging me to make some Texas Ranger items. Here's an electronic device holder and a zipper pouch.
This device holder is weighted and can comfortably hold even an iPad tablet upright.

My partner is a teacher and had jellyfish, mermaids and narwhals on her inspiration board. All of it kinda stumped me because I am not a fan of sea creatures-- When I think beach, I am more into flip flops, cute umbrellas and tropical decorations...
I realized my partner was really into rainbow and mustache and beard stuff after I really looked at more pictures on her IG feed. In the end I came up with this Texan Rainbow Jellyfish on bubble fabric and I framed him inside a simple rainbow star block.

And the obligatory zipper pouch in high school colors. I had to research the school district in her town and compare pictures in her IG feed to make sure I got the right school.

My partner Rebecca also sent some traditional candy and goodies from NZ.
Here's a picture of Oreo on my sewing counter. I wanted to show the striking resemblance to the mini quilt on the wall. Isn't it great?

Here is the mug rug I made with her dog names on it. The dogs have people names. I was lucky to find the mug at Michael's of all places.
And here is the mini quilt. The pug face was alot of work and I ended up doing it twice because the satin stich caused the applique to fray on the edges.
She received the swap and loved it, this is the picture she sent of her dogs with the mini quilt on the floor. I think it's sew cute!

These are the fabrics I received. I was kind of at a loss on what to do so to start I pieced 2" strips together.
My partner is very earthy and has often made items with trees so I decided to make a tree be the center focal point. I did raw edge applique because I thought it was more "earthy".
