Ali was my partner for this round of Make Mine Modern.
I made her a little bag,
And a pillow cover (since she loved one I had made in a previous round),
(And Ali took this picture of it all stuffed and pillowy)
Then I added in my fabric, a hera marker, some cute pins and some Aurifil thread (my favorite).
Even though I was completing this package simultaneously with the first trimester, and it was mailed 2 days late -- it was really fun to have a partner I "knew!" (first time in all my swaps)
The package I received came all the way from India! Shruti sent me these lovely pillow covers, a fabric belt I intend to wear above my tummy, and a cute little fabric bookshelf for Steiger. :)
I've lately been plotting for my Goodie Bag Swap bag. After I made the bag above, I decided I kind of like making them. A few books later... and I'm on my way.
This was the inspiration I gave my secret partner.

I'm telling you all here though -- no more swaps for me for a few months! :)
