...the holidays, that is! But just barely. Right after Christmas, we had company. Our sweet friends from Mexico, G and Cesia came to spend the New Year with us. They got here on friday and by monday, I had the flu. Boo.
Before Christmas I was working on a commissioned quilt that I hope to show pics of soon. So, so far I guess this is the most boring blog post EVER.
It's a case for your flat iron!
I did change it slightly, though. I wanted the seam that is made by the pocket to land in the middle of the case, so I shortened the width of the pocket by a 1/2 in. I also did not want to mess with trying to line up bias tape on the front AND back and just "hoping" that I'm catching both. So I made my own bias binding and sewed it on the same way I would machine sew a binding on a quilt. If the stitches showing on the inside of the case would bother you, you could just hand-stitch the binding down to the other side. I also went ahead and quilted the body of each case. It doesn't seem right to put batting inside an item (insulated or not) and then NOT quilt it.
I almost finished a Christmas gift for a very dear friend...didn't quite get it quilted, but here's the top...
Moda Bake Shop and bought a kit for it from the designer Natalia over at Piece N Quilt. I'll post finished pics later...you know, when it's finished.
