Played Hookey To Sew

I took the afternoon off today to sew, what fun!  Our Groovy Girls club starts on Friday and I still had a couple of samples I wanted to get done so I used that as my excuse. 
Terry Atkinson has a fun new pattern for an E-reader cover that I was adapting for my iPad (come to Groovy Girls and I'll give you my changes).  I've decided I'd much rather follow someone else's pattern than design my own because I just like to sew, sew, sew! I had to keep stopping and measuring and crossing my fingers that it would fit when I got done (no trial versions for me, just on to the finished one out of the perfect fabric). 
It turned out fabulously, although it's difficult to tell from the photo - black fabric and black iPad, not an ideal photo op. Luckily the contrast of our darling Callie saved the picture. I guess you're just going to have to stop by and see the real deal. Now I just want to keep sewing and make a matching camera case and flip video camera (if you can turn your head sideways, check out my first video attempt during my Beginning Quilting class on Facebook)
Instead, I've been helping my sweet husband figure out how to link our Blog to Facebook...hope that goes as well as my Ipad cover.
Do one thing every day that makes you happy - I sew
