Zakka Along 2.0 Patchwork, Please - iPad Cover & Prettified Pincushion

I'm finally finishing up the last few projects in the Patchwork, Please Book by Ayumi Takahashi. Phew! Pregnancy really put me behind didn't it? The sew along ended forever ago it seems. Well I had a few swaps and birthdays come up where the last few items were just too perfect for the occasion.

Originally I wasn't going to make the iPad Cover because well...I don't own an iPad. Say it isn't so! Yep! I'm lame and haven't joined the iPad craze. I do have a tablet, just not the iPad. I don't use it as much as I probably should so I don't feel left out. I could always adjust the pattern to fit my tablet but ehh...whatever.

Anyways, I ended up making one anyhow because of a birthday and I needed to make a gift. I thought the Clipboard fabric from Type would be fun paired with Pink Pearl Bracelets. The other fabrics were fun to throw in too. I opted to machine bind because I haven't been in the mood to hand bind anything lately...no thank you.

I also managed to make the Prettified Pincushion. I used natural linen and some fun colorful scraps that would really pop against the tan. The bottom is some hot pink corduroy fabric I had on hand. I filled it up with crushed walnut shells for weight. The button really makes the pincushion doesn't it? It's so....well...pretty! Like sprinkles on a cupcake. I was really tempted to keep this for myself but was strong. I wrapped it up with my swap items as a little extra and sadly packaged everything up. Ready to mail out to my partner this week. Sniff...I'm jealous that my partner gets to keep it and not me.
