Liberty fun

While in Toronto I visited one of my besets friends, Samantha, who has a wee thing for Liberty of London fabric.  She is heading to London in a week's time, and is visiting the Mothership itself.  She mentioned she bought a new iPad mini to take on her trip, so I thought I would put something together.

I started by using scraps and neutrals and put them together to look a bit like flying birds...



Then brought it all together to make a cover for her mini, with birds on front and back.



Did some accent stitching around the birds.




And lined it with Liberty, too!



And easy project and so much fun.  I think I need to make a mini quilt with some Liberty birds for me!

It is adorable! Love the fact that you have the toggle button instead of velcro. The button really makes the entire piece work. Glad you used different neutrals - really makes a statement. Yes, make yourself one.

Love how those Liberty birds turned out. What a great gift! So jealous that your friend is headed to London. I really want to get back there. What did you use for background fabric?
