Dear friends, I have a finish to share with you today: a new tablet case!
I made the case using a pattern in Anna Graham’s book, Handmade Style. I’ve made the pencil case version of the pattern a couple of times before, but hesitated to make the tablet case version. The idea of putting in piping was terrifying to me. And why? Who knows.
But in the spirit of the New Year and trying new things, I gave piping a shot. And, dear reader, I am happy to report that it was the easiest thing ever!
Not bad for a first time piper, huh? Thankfully, I found a great tutorial on inserting piping over at Swoon Patterns and the piping came together with no problems.
I’m thrilled with my new case. Instead of using it to tote a tablet, I plan on using it to carry around a notebook and my new set of Stablio pens.
Working on this pattern reminded me that it’s nearly always a good idea to try a new technique. I’m now imagining all the projects with piping that I will tackle!
What new skill are you hoping to learn this year?
