Make Mine Modern swap

….coming to an end.

We are just about done with our third swap and plan on going into a summer swap. This swap has been fantastic! Just go check out some of the items that were sent here.

This is what I made my partner. DSC_0021

I made an iPad cover. I do not own one of these so I hope it fits. I used a binder to reinforce it so it is more stable. I also did some stitching on it to spice it up a little. You can see I stitched the Apple logo on it and then some hand quilting.

Then I made a sewing machine cover. It is matching fabric, so I could stick to a theme. I wasn’t sure of the height of her machine so I hope that it works. I also added some hand quilting to this.

Then some hand stitching in the bottom corner to add character.

I had a friend of mine, Christine, who has awesome talent making pins make her some Santa pins since she collects Santas. I think this is the only item I was sure that she would like….sorry, not the best picture of them.

I got some Parisville, HR Vans, Hope valley and cute hexi’s. I also got the coolest card from Anthropologie that I am going to frame because the colors are perfect! Then I got the cutest bunting that is going in the corner of my sewing room. A rug that is going at the foot of my cutting table. I just have to look at it every day. A sewing machine cover that is FABULOUS! Also, she forgot to add another thing that she had made for me to the package. I got yesterday but havent taken a picture of it yet. I got a zippy pouch with a needle book attatched to the inside of it, a pair of orange scissors that fold up, and a thread catcher. So very perfect! I will take pictures soon.

So I am staying busy, just cant reveal too much yet but keep your eyes peeled….its coming!

your projects look so pretty. And I love what you got and how it fits perfectly in to your sewing room! :) I already told you your doll quilt is awesome... but I hadn't seen the one you got... very nice. :)

But seeing your sewing room is still making me feel sorry for myself that there are a number of states between us. Next fall market -- we need a date.
