Modern She Made

by Nicole

Doesn’t it feel good to set a goal and get it done?!?

One of my goals this weekend was to finish my Modern She Made Swap item. And I did!


Here is the wonky star pillow I made for my partner. She was very specific about what she wanted, which made things easier for me.


I quilted outlines of the stars and a loopy meandering stitch on the background.

I added a label, bound it and stuffed it like a sausage. Voilà! All done!

I plan on making a little something extra for my partner. What will I make? A pouch? Coin purse? Key fob? Decisions, decisions.
