ipad case

i mentioned that husband got an ipad for his birthday {that he lets me play with!} so i decided not to take "the lazy way out" {aka buying a case}, got my tub o wool out and made him one myself!

velcro flap, heavy-duty interfacing, and some batting.

i also tried my hand at a little free-motion name tag. it looks kinda like jish or jssh, but i'm not worried about it enough to redo it.

and some of the top-stitching is a little crooked, but for the most part it's quite fulfilling to imagine a result and make it a reality all in one rainy afternoon.
 of course, i think my sewing machine needs a check-up now, it started acting a bit wonky at the end.

  1. this is so beautiful!!! what a lucky guy to have such a talented gal like you. i made a macbook cover out of felt. it looks pretty rad, but you know, being felt, it's not aging very well. oops! :)

  2. Angie, you did an incredible job with this, even if the stitching does seem to read "jssh". I think that's one of the things so perfect about it: that it's a little imperfect. Now it has a great story and a smile behind it.

  4. Love It! How could he not love it more just because the most important person to him made it with an open heart! I can't wait to get an iPad...soon! I'll show you the case I make when I do! It's so wrong that your sewing machine wants to do crazy things :( Hopefully, it will work better soon. :)

  6. Oooo, that's so gorgeous. It looks like something you'd find at a high-end somewhat indie-ish store. I really adore how you stitched his name, the crookness adds personality, its nicer than if it was straight I think.

  8. Free form quilting - I'm so impressed! And if the machine worked perfectly; now where's the fun in that?
