Sew Sew Modern Swap

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!

Love that pillow. Thanks for all the links, I've pinned them.
Your partner is one very lucky partner, the Anna Maria Horner fabrics look fabulous in that string star, and you know I love text fabric!

I left my swap comments on the wrong post somehow...but I am loving your pillow! I'm going to try one of the spiderwebs someday, too!
