For Mom

Over the weekend, my mom reminded me that I had promised her a "winter outfit" for her Nook after I made her the floral one over the summer.  On Tuesday I was able to make it to JoAnn's to pick out some fabrics and get the rest of my supplies, and yesterday I sewed it together. 


I stuck with quilting cottons because I didn't want it to get too bulky.  There's a coordinating fabric on the inside, and I made the one-pocket version again:



This is such a great pattern.  I was able to cut everything out just using my rotary cutter and ruler.  The outer piece is interfaced with fusible fleece, so the end result is nice and squishy.  I spent some time pondering how I wanted the fabrics arranged, but even so, this is just a two-hour project!  So fun to make!

  1. Gail, I love seeing all your projects and reading your words about how you put the
    fabric together and end up with something
    that is usable. That cover would have taken
    me all day and it would be questionable if
    it would fit or not ;)
    You sewed another great item and I just don't understand why you don't move south so I can learn from you!

    1. The first two I made didn't fit, LOL! I guess the third time's a charm! Fourth time too!

  2. ooh, I really love this version. It's so elegant and I bet your mom is going to love carrying this around. I agree with Tracey but you need to move to the east coast!
