Ah Ha! Figured Out What to Make.

Okay this is what I had left over from the wall hanging and the Bargello in the Round. 

I cut all the strips into 3/4, 1, and 1 & 1/2 inch strips. then I sewed them together to make a wave. I cut the best rectangle from this pieced assortment and had a small piece of completed Bargello. I sewed it to the background fabric. Then worked on making a pouch and pocket on the inside for the wires and charger etc. The pocket is roomy in case I want to carry a small notepad in there as well. Sometimes you need to use good old pen and paper.

Here is the front. I had to bind the edge instead of sewing and turning it right side out. Just didn't have enough fabric.
Here is the front and back opened so you can see the Bargello. The green elastic is a hairband I sewed to the inside to help keep the case closed.




Here it is closed with the hairband around the back.
This is the inside. you can see the iPad inside the big pocket and the wires inside the little pocket. There is the hairband that I used. It is sewn to the front, I followed the quilted lines on the front so the stitching wouldn't show through on the front.

I now have very small pieces of this fabric left over. What I usually do is give them to Sharon and she takes them to her class. The children use my scraps at the creative table and make beautiful art projects. :) Now what project to work on? Do I machine quilt some finished tops or start another top? Tune in to find out!
