Ooh we just bought a tablet. I’m kind of a curmudgeon about technology, but recently it dawned on me that packing up the laptop every time we travel just so we can look up restaurants and record shops is kind of silly. It’s kind of like someone packing up a desktop computer and bringing it to work every day.
I decided we should get “one of those fancy phones” but when I realized how much they cost, it seemed like a tablet made more sense. (We got a Google Nexus 7 if you’re wondering). I am SO excited to use it on all our day trips, weekend trips, and the bigger ones.
I ordered a case to keep this expensive little toy safe, but it’s not supposed to come for like, a month (what is up with that). So here is my temporary tablet…. sleeping bag. Similar, no? This is made from leftover gray wool from this dress.
- I can’t believe how close to symmetrical the quilting came out. That was very minimally planned out, and mostly luck.
- I would have cut the batting about 1/4″ smaller on all sides before sewing to minimize bulk in the seams, as well as not sewn the quilting seams all the way to the edges to make it easier to grade the seams.
- The edges are sort of a reverse french seam. If I had thought about it first, what you are seeing on the outside is actually supposed to be the inside. The other side of the quilting looks better. Oh well. Now you only know because I told you.
- I would like to do the edges of the flap differently, but I’m not sure how. They look kind of sloppy.
- I would move the velcro up just a bit – I didn’t want the edges of the flap to curl up, but I would like the velcro to be a little more hidden.
- I would like the velcro to be gray.
Now we can take “the precious” out of the house.
