Whew! I'm starting to settle back into the normalcies of life after the whirlwind of this past holiday weekend. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and enjoyed time spent with family and friends, I know we sure did.
Santa was overly generous this year, and left a new sewing machine under the tree, which I was ecstatic about. I just love my new machine, which I've affectionately named Bertha, as in Big Bertha, as she towers over my old machine and makes it look like a toy.
We've been spending some time getting to know one another, and just last night she completed her first project. I have been eyeing this iPad case tutorial from Faith of Fresh Lemons for some time now, and had every intention of making one for the hubby's iPad for Christmas, however I just ran out of time. My soon to be sister in law just received a Nook for Christmas and asked if I'd make her a case, and I immediately thought of Faith's tutorial and of doctoring it up to fit a Nook.
I altered my dimensions to make it Nook sized, and decided that I wanted a top zipper closure instead of a flap velcro closure. Because I used the zipper tabs on the top zipper, the case is quite roomy on the inside, but I think it works.
I just love the front zipper pocket idea, this was genius Faith! It will be perfect for storing head phones, charging cables or miscellaneous items that are always getting misplaced. After seeing how well this turned out, I'm thinking my Nook needs a new home too.
Amanda loved the quilt that I made her for Christmas this year, so I used some more Terrain to make her Nook case, I'll be giving this to her this weekend, hopefully she likes it!
