I finally have some time to get some “new project” sewing done so I went through my Pinterest pile of projects to try out (and subsequently pinned a bunch more….) when I came across this tutorial and thought in would give it a try. Anna Joy Pham has four options for you to select from for Ipad/Kindle sleeves. I selected “The Ruby” design.
The tutorial calls for three prints but this gorgeous linen print just arrived in the studio today and I couldn’t help but make it feel welcome by putting it to good use right away.
So I cut the fabric two different directions to give it a bit of interest. I cut the two OUTSIDE piece at 3″ by 13.5″ as she suggested but I opted to cut the inside strip at 2.25″ by 13.5″.
I LOVE making fabric covered buttons and any excuse to do so is more than welcome!
Other than that I followed the tutorial closely and it was pretty darned easy. I always need to do yoga breathing when I’m turning the item through those little tiny holes by that’s just me. Next time I will make the suggested 2 inch hole in the inside liner more like four inches…. That’s just me….easier is better.
Look how cute the stripes look as a surprise inside!
Anyway the options are endless. Any techie friend (and aren’t they all) would appreciate one of these little goodies.
Oh and it took me about 2 hours but I was interrupted about a gazillion times. The next one shouldn’t take longer than an hour. I think WAY too hard the first time I make anything. I’m sure that is what why I can’t just make one of something. The third or fourth time around the project is so much more fun and I can take liberty with it!
Any how. Make one (or two or three)!! You can do it.
