Today, in my travels across the internet, I stumbled upon Sew Mama Sew's tutorial for a X pillow. Now I really wish I had my sewing machine!
I also found twelve22's zippered pouch tutorial, which not only uses awesome superhero fabric but looks clear and easy to follow. I can't wait to do some of these projects once I have my machine back! I'd love to make a pouch to keep all my current cross-stitch materials in - way cuter than a zip-lock bag!
