I quick washed the fabric and got right on it and about an hour or so later, had it done. OK, maybe it took 2 hours, I wasn't counting, but it was a lot faster than making a purse! I had only purchased a half yard of 3 different fabrics, so each side of the case is different. I love this fabric! It has soft, pretty colors and a sheen to it, it's by Lakehouse and it's gorgeous. I think she'll like it. She better use it or I have to bop her on head!
Don't tell her but she's also getting some good black licorice, Aussie Style, and some lovely chocolate covered Bing cherries. And a card and visit from us- her only daughter and her favorite son-in-law. lol
Isn't it pretty? The dots are shiny and the swirls on the background of the butterfly piece are shiny, also. I would love a bedroom done in this fabric, but my husband might not think so much of it. lol
She's also getting a new pinnie, done in cat fabric with mice pockets, reversible and lined with a great striped fabric. The pattern is from The Brassy Apple, it's the Lucy pattern and comes as an e-pattern, so there's no waiting if you order one, you'll have it so fast in your email inbox. And the pattern is fast and easy and fits great. I shortened this one a bit as Mum is quite petite, but I like the shorter version for me, too.
Happy Mother's Day to The Mumster! She's the best mom and best friend a girl could ever hope for.
