Case for Tablet

When I got a Samsung tablet a few months ago I still had a job and I took it into work to show some colleagues who were thinking of buying one.  One of them said I need a case.  I said yes, I thought I would sew one.  He said 'oh no! get a decent looking one!'
Well I ignored him.
That is a cup of earl grey next to it.  No sugar and I guess you would call it milky.  Well it is milky in Australia but in the UK (I am a Brit) that is not milky, just normal.  Love tea!  Cannot get enough of it.
So I made my tablet case from leftover scraps of children at play by Sarah Jane which I made my sons quilt from.  I had these tiny strips so I just sewed them together and had it lying around for several months waiting.
Here is it before I did the binding.  I am definitely improving my binding skills.  I quilted it with straight lines and used batting and a nice lining fabric.  
As you can see the tablet case is a bit wonky.  I like it like this but I think it should really have been more wonky as it is only halfheartedly wonky and could be mistaken for just being put together badly.  Heaven forbid.
I used this really bright and vibrant fabric for the lining.  I love it.
So that is my finish for this week.
I hope you have a great weekend!
