Finishes and Failures

I've been neglecting this:
My sewing room has been neglected lately. I'll have to correct that ASAP!

So I finished binding this:
Finally got the binding on this baby gift!

And then I tried to make a kindle cover.  The March 3 is significant since that is my birthday. (the front)

Back

I used tons of my precious favorites and some pieces I only had a tiny bit of.  I was so happy with it....until I tried to put my Kindle in it and realized it was too small!  Boo!  I decided to make a it a tool pouch instead! :)
Epic fail=tool pouch

I really hope I'm not the only one who makes beginner mistakes!  Let this be a lesson to all of you who are participating in the My Precious QAL, always double check your measurements!!!!

I guess my epic fails are a little more 'epic' than yours are. :) Like, so bad, I can't take pictures of them without sobbing. Ah, well. There is always wine.

hehehe that's EXACTLY what I did when I made Neil's kindle case. I'd used up all the cool vintage car fabric I had on it too.
So don't worry, you're not alone in your rookie mistake :)

It's a lovely tool case anyway! But it's the studio space I can't get over. It looks so beautiful and orderly. I have a studio corner in my boys' playroom and, after looking at your photo I'm inspired to tidy up a little more often!

I've done that soooo many times, and then thought, duh - I did that last time - why didn't I learn??? Welcome to the club, membership is very exclusive :)

Trust me, you're not the only one! Meanwhile, I'm drooling over your sewing room and the great fabric you used in your Kindle/tool pouch

Those Kindles are sneaky little sods!

I'm working on my own ipad case and keep checking and checking.. i'm so glad you were able to use the bag despite the oops! one day, i will have a sewing room... where i can spread out my quilts!!

Heh, I did something similar a while back, but still, it gives us a chance to think up new and exciting things to repurpose our 'adventures' into ;o)

I always seem to have sizing issues for these little electronics cases; I don't know if it's just me sewing on autopilot or what. Haha, and ti think that people take even time to make muslins before cutting into fabric to make clothes, and I just want to get going! I always say that making mistakes is the best way to learn, but that's really just to make myself feel better:)

Oh no! I had the same thing happen when I made a case for my mum-in-law's ereader. It JUST squeezes in and seems to be stretching a bit with use.

Great Space! I love the lighting you have! (side note: my moms birthday is March 3rd and so is my Father in Law's Great date! :) )
