Best laid plans...

I started out this week by making an iPad pouch for my relatively new iPad. It has a cover from Typo on it, but if I take it out with me in my bag it needs a little more protection. Those of you with great spatial awareness will realise that this pouch is far too small. Yep. I pieced, then quilted, then trimmed. And I trimmed to the wrong measurement. So I decided to make two smaller pouches for ???, no idea what for, but two smaller pouches. I'm still working on the second and this one just needs a snap on it. So my iPad is still pouchless. Perhaps I will make one next week?

I have been meaning to go to the fabric shop for some time now and finally made it there today. I was looking for fabric with planes on it for my February do. Good stitches blocks. (We are making this block from here.) There were lots with planes, but I couldn't seem to settle on any. I was very taken with the kite and hot air balloon fabrics which I figured were almost planes.

Planes and almost planes.

Tomorrow I plan to stay home all day and sew. Not sure if I will get as far as the plane blocks, but I will be sewing something!

Oh Kris - that's exactly the thing that I do...what is it about measuring twice? I am sure you'll find a great use for them - they are lovely!

I love the fabric on the far right...cute!

Im always mucking up my seam allowances when I make things like pouches, and Ipad covers. Can you use your too small covers for ipods or phones?
