it's Cozy

A Morgan-handmade-with-love.
No, I am not joking.
Morgan made this cute little cover for his sister's new ipod which she got for her birthday recently. It was given as an I love you 'just because' present.
Seriously could my man be any sweeter? Even though after finishing it at 11.30 at night he vowed to never to sew with me again! (this was the second cover we ended up making that night and had been unpicked about three times as we somehow kept getting the measurements wrong - totally not my fault, he was supposed to be the maths brains!!)

He even choose the fabrics (with a little help).
M: I really want to make one, but I don't have any fabric *looks disheartened*
K: umm, just who are you dating again!?
M: oh yeah!!

we used the idea for the elastic closure from this tutorial (it works really well and I thought it was simple for Morgan to sew than a button loop) and for the lining we used a soft white cotton flannel. For the sizing Morgan went on to the ipod website and found the measurements and then made a cardboard mock pod, which ended up being exactly the same size - score!

wanna see something sexy?

mmmmm
He sewed every last stitch except for top stitching the opening closed as it was small and fiddly. And it was all about that little pointer finger guiding it through. So cute !
M, my love I am in need of a new phone cover you know ;)

  9. Absolutely darling!
    You know what Katie??
    My hubby can sew too! SHHH! ;)
    Acually in all seriousness, he can, and well. He has no idea of the tech behind it, but he can make a fairly straight stitch and used to put together some amazing "Outdoors" clothing for him and his friends (way back in the day). I love it.
    I miss you.... and I apologize for being so absent in comments!
    Loves to you sweetie!
