I participated in a new swap.
It's called the Sew Sew Modern Swap
and you were to make something spectacular
(since we had 3 months to make it in!)
If you have a moment,
take some time to look at our Flickr group
Everyone did an absolutely outstanding job!
I haven't received my swap yet,
but my partner should be receiving her's today.
(if the tracking report is correct, that is!)
A pillow was first on her list.
Using a tutorial I found from Little Miss Shabby
I made this pillow
The tutorial for the star can be found
I used Innocent Crush by Anna Marie Horner.
I don't have the name of the text print fabric, darn it!
For the back of the pillow, I also used Innocent Crush,
but I used an AWESOME tutorial by Amy of eamylove.
Can you believe there is a zipper under there?
You can find the tutorial to make this covered zipper on Amy's blog
We were also to make a 'small' item to send along.
I chose to make Melissa's, of 100 billion stars,
Easy Street bag.
I LOVE this patter for something quick, yet classy, to make as a gift.
You can find the pattern for the bag
If you've made any of these items I've posted today,
I'd love to see your version!
Let me know!
Make it a good one!
