I was so pleased with how my first iPad cover turned out that I made two!
It’s that time of year when there’s a lot of birthdays on the horizon and I have to get my thinking cap on for gifts. I don’t know about anyone else, but to me a gift is not about how much you spend but how much thought goes into the actual gift….. When I’m giving to someone I know well I find this much more enjoyable because I feel I can give something more personal. So, (although this has long past, please bear with) I had made these iPad covers for Christmas for a family member and friend (lucky owners of an iPad…oh I wish for one of these soooo much!) and thought I would share the end results with you. Yes, I think these might come in very handy for some of those birthdays I was talking about……
: : This is the front of the cover with a roomy pocket to store your charger or any other little items you might need it for : :
: : The cover is secured with a magnetic closure and is fully lined with same green spotty fabric as the pocket, but you could easily use a third fabric to add variety : :
: : And here are the two covers back and front…apologies for the slightly dodgy pictures…I’m pleased to say that my friends were thrilled with their pressies and I’m one happy lady : :
What do you think? I chose these colours as the people in question are very fond of blues and greens but I can see these in brighter colours too, and would love to try adding some ric rac or pom pom trim… like I have with my sewing machine cover (see below)
And here it is……you may have noticed in my ‘About Me’ blurb that I spoke of my new sewing machine? well, it had to have a cover….and this is what I came up with…and yep, it’s got a pom pom trim on the front pocket!
Now, please excuse the busy background….I made this in a workshop BEFORE my machine had actually arrived! I like to be prepared!
The weekend was glorious here in sunny Sussex last week and I can’t finish this post without sharing some of the beautiful things we saw on our afternoon out in the countryside…..for it was a productive two days spent out enjoying the long awaited for spring weather. We don’t really care what the weather’s doing as come rain or shine we always take a flask of hot tea with us and something to snack on! but it helped there were sun beams this time….
And you’re not imagining it….that is my smelly dog tied to the tree in the background! He had just waded through some truly stagnant foul smelling mud trench, and was jumping around next to us whilst we were sitting drinking our tea (the flask!!) so had to be restrained temporarily!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this post and my makes….please feel free to comment if you feel inclined. It has been lovely seeing that there are actually people who have seen my blog and want to follow it! I have been so flattered knowing that someone has enjoyed what they’ve seen/read….THANK YOU!!
