I found THE BEST tutorial on YouTube called "A shabby chic tablet case for you to sew! by Debbie Shore" It took me 2.5 hours to get through the first 12 minutes because I worked along with her, step by step (gotta love that iPad ;0)). Here's how it turned out:
The front is embellished with vintage lace I've collected, a Fleur de lis charm and an Eiffel Tower charm. The buttons are a mother of pearl style. I found some great graphics of French Costume Ladies from The Graphics Fairy. I printed them on fabric paper. (Can you tell I love French-themed things)?
These type of things are very addicting to make - and easy-peasy. I've already made another, which I can't show you because it's a surprise for someone.
Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
