I have been getting all kinds of fantastic craft ideas on Pinterest.com
It's a virtual Bulletin Board where you can post your ideas and things you find all over the web. And you can also look at what others post. Great stuff. So I found this little notebook cover thing for a child and I decided to try to make one for Joanna to take to church, restaurants, or anywhere she has to sit for very long.
I started with a quilted pillow sham that I picked up at Goodwill and hadn't found a good use for, and some scrap fabric from a dress I had made for Joanna.
I cut off a section of the pillow sham and sewed on the pockets, trying to only sew through the lining, and not the quilted cover. I cut a slit in the lining where the tablet could slide through, and sewed a ribbon around the slit so it wouldn't tear any more.
I sewed ribbons on to close it, and Ta-Da! A very fast and easy project.
Oh, and she adores it!
