As soon as I saw this fabric ...
The backing is a bit more of a mix.
I made it for Gbf's birthday present so used fabrics I know he likes. Bicycles, space Invaders, gardeners text fabric. How cute are these 3 eyed aliens by Heather Ross. I feel a bit cruel for sewing over them. I think that alien on the walkie talkie is saying " Help! Help!We've been stitched up!" .
The lining is like an optical illusion!! I used a double thickness of batting for extra squishy padding.
And here it is, the iPad in its new cover!! As snug as a bug in a rug!!
Gbf wasn't the only lucky recipient of gifts this week.
This arrived in the mail for me...
My friend Jan of Sew Surprising made these for me as a thank you for a little thing I'd sent her. She certainly Sew Surprised me!! She also sent these Woolly Wonders ( that's the name I've given them). I must admit I wasn't 100% sure what they were meant to be. I was thinking mug rugs.. Jan says they're the best dishhcloths. I had to laugh, imagine if I'd thought they were dish cloths and they were really mug rugs, that would have been embarrassing.
I'm going to be a rebel though , I'll only use one as a dishcloth, and the other 2 can be mug rugs. Thank you Jan, your parcel was such a wonderful surprise and I love my gifts!!!
Thank you too to all the lovely people who have sent me amazing house blocks. I know I'm keeping you all suspense by not showing them off yet but I will... all in good time. :)
