Simplified Origami Bags (Amy Butler Pattern)

I just got the book 'Style Stitches: 12 Easy Ways to 26 Wonderful Bags' by Amy Butler for Xmas.  I haven't sewn in a while, so I'm starting very easy- I started with the Origami Bags and I dumbed them down a bit (took out the gussets and tab on the side of the bag). Also, I don't have a ton of scrap fabric laying around so I only made them with one exterior fabric instead of two.  So far, I really like the book- very easy to follow the direction.

Crochet Something Pretty Pattern Flower Pillow

 Not sure where I am going to use it yet, but I just finished making one of two crochet pillows using the Something Pretty pattery I found on Ravelry.  I used a 12x16 inch pillow form for the inside and plain crochet squares for the back.  I attached the front and the back together with single crochet through both loops of the V.
