Gifties: Friday Finish Edition

It's all about the gifties here lately! I won't complain though, I love to make 'em and I love to give 'em away!

First up is a cute patchwork iPad sleeve for my friend, Rachel. Rachel's gramma recently passed away unexpectedly and I wanted to do something to give Rachel a little something to smile about. She told me she likes green, blue and purple and a few hours later I had the finished product. I used Kristin Link's tutorial (from Craftsy) with her alternate measurements for the iPad size (from Sew, Mama, Sew website).

Pieced heart

Finished sleeve...forgot the label of course

Pretty grey solid lining.

I also whipped up yet another bunting banner. I can't believe how popular these things are becoming in my family. And they go together SO quickly! This one is for my dad. He has a small hobby farm that he calls "Tin Top Farm" because of the steel roofs on the buildings. He requested bunting when he saw the one I made for my nephew Riley. 


The iron-on letters make this project a breeze

Linking up with the Friday gals - see the buttons on the side bar. Happy Friday!
