Well, my Tim likes the handmade and I love him for it :)
Tim has a new tablet and asked for a custom case - what a great chance to make the perfect gift and dust off my old friend the sewing machine!
We chose all of the fabric together making sure to find a durable outer fabric and a super soft lining. A little canvas ribbon was the perfect custom add on.
I would share a tutorial, but it would basically go like this:
1. Desperately try to remember how you made that purse with lining once.
2. Cut and sew on the fabric as best you can with your fingers crossed.
3. Did it work? Phew!
Since we're spending Christmas with our families, I gave him his gift a little early so don't worry, the surprise wasn't spoiled via the internet.
Whatcha think - do you like getting handmade or store-bought gifts?
