Remember I started a tablet case as a gift here? Well I finished it!
It is about halfway to the UK at the moment on the way to my dad. It won't be much of a surprise :)
Last week I made the patchwork front and then yesterday I finished it as my sister was leaving and needed to take it with her. I hope he likes it. He didn't want really girly colours...
I had to put binding on the front side opening end but I decided to do the back differently so it didn't need binding. So I made a sandwich if the lining and back right sides together and the batting next to the lining and sewed along the top. Then I turned it so it was right sides out and did one line of stitching along the top. I then did straight line quilting on the rest of the back and the lines were about 0.5" apart. As it is quite small this was quick.
I did some thin binding along the front opening end. I did at all by machine. This worked ok although it looks all a bit wavy in that shot. It isn't wavy in real life.
Then I sewed the front and backs together. I then made my binding.
Here is the quilted back before binding. I love the simple quilting. I also like the denim fabric. I don't know where it is from as I was given it by a freecycler. What is that bit of white fluff in that picture? Oh, just some white fluff.
And here it is with the binding on. I hand sewed it to the back as it was quite a few layers and I didn't think I would be able to machine it on and have it look very neat on the front. I also messed up the top right by not having enough binding length to finish off nicely. Oh dear. But it isn't THAT noticable.
I hope my daddy loves it and it keeps his tablet nice and safe and free from scratches!
