Some Stitching

I've been stitching various bits and pieces recently and thought I'd share pictures of a cover for an e-reader or tablet taken from a design by those clever Clover people - I do have a weakness for their products!!  The outer fabric is a Kaffe Fasset print and the lining is a toning batik stype cotton fabric, both purchased in my local store. There isn't much to say about this really as hopefully the pictures are self explanatory.  The little strips of elastic hold the device in place and the clever strap arrangement either holds the holder closed like a book (with velcro) or the strap doubles as a strut so that the tablet stands at an angle for easy viewing of films etc. Some of you might have spotted Jennie Rayment recently on Create and Craft showing how this is made - she usually has a patchwork/quilting show on Sunday mornings at 8am, well worth a look.

Make My Monday Challenge

I can hardly believe just how long it has taken me this morning to make a card - the elements here (and others) have been shuffled around so many times they must be dizzy!!  The challenge at Make My Monday is to use ribbon and buttons and I decided straight away to use the Memory Box die cut tree and some tiny Papermania buttons but it was the rest of it which seemed to cause me problems.  Eventually I settled on Nestabilities and some die cut corners combined with punched ones and a piece of spotty paper from my oddments box.  All I can say is that it is a good job I'm not paid piece work - come to think of it I'm not paid full stop!! I do this for fun.
