My daughter draws a lot. And I mean a lot. She draws a lot like I sew a lot - pretty much all the time. She got a new tablet during the holidays because her old one wore out - not an iPad kind of tablet, the kind you draw on and the drawings go to Photoshop (or wherever you send them).
So, she asked me if I would make a sleeve for her tablet, to protect it in her purse and backpack. I said of course and told her to pick out some fabric. She did. It's been sitting on my cutting table for nearly six weeks now. I know, Mom fail.
The good news is we are going to Chicago to visit her this weekend, so the tablet sleeve is done! I must say, she has great taste in fabric - she picked two of my favorites from Comma and Heath. My original idea was to use the green commas for the outside and the grey Heath for the inside, but I didn't have enough Comma so I used the Heath as well and chose another fabric for the lining. I used the same method I use when I make my sunglasses cases - I made a mini quilt the right size, then folded it and stitched in the ditch along the binding. I added some velcro and a little pocket for the "pen" that she uses to draw. I hope she likes it! It will make me feel so good to know she is carrying around a little bit Mom-made goodness with her :)
