We are 45 minutes away from soccer practice, my house is a mess (again), but I am feeling pretty darn happy because I just finished making something and I really, really like it.
This is one of those things that has been done to death--a fad that has come and gone, but that's okay. I tend to be on the slow boat when it comes to most fads. My goodness, I've had an Ipod for three years and--yesterday--for the first time--I downloaded itunes for it. I'm slow. What can I say?
This has been too much build-up for my little item, but here it is anyway: My very first Tissue Pack Cover!
Little and cute!
I think the part I'm most happy with is the quilting. It's something I haven't done much and, though it is far from perfect, it worked out pretty much how I wanted it to. Here's a close up:
and the inside of the pack has red polka dots like the trim:
So, there you have it. A fun little project with a happy ending. I think I'll take it to soccer practice because I'm sure to get the sniffles in the pollen-filled park!
P.S. I used a tutorial from Alderwood Quilts for this project.
