This iPad cover was made by my amazing little sister Karli as a gift to me for my birthday. She is 9 years old. She picked out the fabric and whipped it up with the help of Coach Grandma. The R is for Ree, obviously. I am so proud of her, and SO grateful for her gift! Just had to show it off.
You may remember a few months ago when I shared my failed attempts at sewing clothes. Well, I'm at it again. As usual, it was a spontaneous, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of decision, this time in the form of, "Hey, I'm going to sew a summer nightgown!" Because, those are wildly popular right now, right? Oh wait...that was the 1950s. Right up my alley.
But, good news, it wasn't a flop! I actually wore it last night and it was comfortable and I had sweet dreams of performing in a musical with my little brother Luke (true story!). I decided to make a scottie dog to put on the front, because that seemed pretty 1950s to me. Here's a close up:
Once again, a big thank you goes out to my #1 fabric supplier, Grandma Alice, for the pink knit fabric and turquoise gingham. I may end up making another one of these because I have a lot of knit up there in my sewing room! Perhaps an old-fashioned nightshirt for Michael?
