I found a cute pattern on Moda Bake Shop, and amended it to suit his tastes.
It is a really simple design. Basically, it is a padded pocket with a front flap. Very simple. Even I couldn't mess that up. Right?
Unfortunately, I could. And did. Doesn't the Nook look so cute tucked in like that? Too bad it doesn't fit in the pocket!! So frustrating! It is a minuscule amount too wide. A teensy, tiny bit. And I can't fix it!
So, lessons learned:
- I don't know how to sew with batting. Major issues with bunching and thread tension.
- Next time, cut the fabric wider than needed. - clearly I cannot sew a 1/8 seam to save my life.
- Binding is still terribly difficult!
Update 5/4/11: I was able to fix it by pulling off the binding and sewing it on again in the right spot. A good thing, too, since I didn't have enough fabric to do it again! It'll do.
