I'm just a Crafty galSometimes, needlepoint projects can take me a while. Last summer, I began a Stitch n Zip iPad cover and took it with me on my vacation as it was small enough to fit in my handbag. When I returned, my sister said she thought it cute and said when I was finished it was hers for her birthday.
I finished a few weeks ago. And here's the progression:
Beginning late June, 2015
finished November 2015.
I like working with cotton floss and these kits are furnished with those. I do use a different needle than the one which is included in the package. For the center of the flowers, I added a bead instead of stitching with white thread. After all, this was for my sister and she needed some glamor. Because this case was to be used for an iPAD, I wanted to beef up the protection. I cut a piece of black felt on the inside and hotglued on 3 sides. Then I slipped in loose batting (because that is what I had!) and finished gluing. I put a split ring on the zipper for easy grasping and using.
My sister says she loves it.
