Other Sewing

Before I remade the Nook pouch, I took time to make a birthday gift for my wonderful friend Lisa, who celebrates her birthday today (hi, Lisa!). If you want to be surprised, don't scroll down, Lisa! 'bout that Superbowl, eh? (I didn't watch any - just making conversation)., anyone here from out of town?

Okay, I think we're ready to go. Here's the iPad case I made for Lisa's newest toy:

I used this tutorial over at Fresh Lemons Quilts and it came together really nicely. If I were to make it again, I'd probably measure and place the velcro first instead of last. Trying to wrangle that case under the needle to stitch down the velcro was a pain in the patootie!

The exterior fabric is Ruby Star Rising (Viewmasters) from Melody Miller, and the interior is an Anna Maria Horner print from her earlier Chocolate Lollipop line - the colours went so nicely together!

Last look, with the zipper pocket open a bit:

  1. It's lovely! I have a ipad that I need to make a case for, I really like that big pocket on this one.

  2. Awesome!! Love that viewmaster fabric.

  3. Gorgeous!! I love the viewmaster too and it looks perfect with the lining :)

  4. Was there a Superbowl?...

    Such a cute pouch. I am fan of that particular zipper placement.

  5. Oh my goodness...I LOVE this. That fabric by Melody Miller is just to die for, isn't it?

  6. its beautiful xxxx she's gonna love it! (or she should!)

  7. Hahaha...I hope Lisa resisted the urge to scroll down! I know I wouldn't be able to!
    I still love that viewmaster print...why don't I have any yet I wonder. That's just not right.

  8. Nice one!!! I think I'll use that pattern for our new toy, too. Happy Birthday Felicity's Friend!

  9. This is so cute, the fabric is so fun!
