My daughter, as part of a high school academic program, received a Chrome Book to use and keep for the school year. She was pretty excited about 1. having her own little computer and 2. a computer which isn’t a Mac, iPad or iPhone. Being that we are a Apple products kind of family, there are a lot of programs etc. we can’t access using our Mac. It’s never really bothered me but it seems the school based programs tend to be accessed better by a Windows based operating system.
Being that Rylee is only ‘borrowing’ the cute, little laptop for the school year, she asked if I could make her a sleeve to protect the laptop. Of course, I obliged. I asked her to select fabrics and she picked one that I worked with a lot last year, ‘The Ghastlies’ Collection. How she ever remembered this collection, I don’t quite understand as I have stored the collection in a ‘seasonal fabrics’ bin which isn’t even visible in my studio. I did suggest other fabrics but she was pretty set on the ‘The Ghastlies’. I have to admit they are cute but thought ‘Botanics’ by Carolyn Friedlander or ‘Sun Print’ by Alison Glass would have been a great choice also.
In the original version, I have made little handles so that she could easily pull the sleeve from her back pack but apparently, the handles made it look ‘babyish’ and she said she would not use them. Thus, this morning, I took it apart and removed the handles (which I thought were really cute but I am not in Grade 9 right!)
There was a time when Rylee wasn’t interested in any of my sewing creations. Now, she is asking for pencil cases, sleeves and quilts. I don’t know what has changed but I’m definitely loving it and not going to question why the change in interest
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend and thanks for stoppin’ by!
