I was very lucky this Christmas and birthday to be given a lovely ipad – I have wanted one forever!! (OK not forever, but it sort of felt that way). And of course a well-loved ipad needs a nice, safe, cosy home to snuggle down in when it’s out and about with its owner. So I made it a new home – machine applique (with tiny touches of hand embroidery – the ladybird and bumble bee) – lined with the softest angora/lambswool mix felted woollen.
It has a little pocket on the back to hold my wireless modem thingy and a button closure to stop it from slipping out.
And I kept to freestyle machine embroidery/applique so the sleeve would be very hard wearing. After all it will have to compete for space in my bag with all sorts of other things …. purse, phone, tissues, glasses in case, old tickets, slightly sticky toffees, a biscuit or two for Ben, keys …etc ..etc …. I’ve just added a tiny hand embroidered ladybird and bumble bee – couldn’t resist!
