Well there's not really a story behind these items: they're sleeves for my netbook, and my boyfriend's iPad. They were both an exercise in sewing neat and straight lines. Maybe it's the season, but we both went with rough winter fabrics in a brown and blue color scheme.

I love this contrast of rough and smooth, brown and deep turqoise. I lined it with the plastic foam the netbook came in for extra protection. The bottom blue lining sticks out a bit, to protect the netbook from the zipper. I added brown bias in the corners to keep the zipper from getting stuck in the wrinkles of the lining.

The iPad sleeve is made of leftover fabric from a coat I made a few years ago. I don't have that coat anymore, so it's nice to see it's fabric used again.
I think it'll be a while before I start making things on other people's request on a regular basis. It's not easy to fulfill their wishes because I often adjust my plans as I go along. On the other hand, it is satisfying when the result lives up to their expectations, and it pushes me not to take the easy way out.

P.P.S. Noticed the new background color? It's a preview of my current big project!
