Mystery Make revealed

Back in September the lovely Jen from Quilter in the Closet made herself a sewing machine mat that I drooled over.  A few emails back and forth later, Jen and I had proposed a little swap.  Sometime she would make me a machine mat, and I would make her an I pad cover.

We both knew this would be a long term swap: one that we could make when we wanted to rather than feeling we had to.  My package to her finally got posted in mid November, and I have heard from her that it arrived safe and sound.

I made her an iPad bag rather than a clutch type cover: I find with handles it's less likely to slip out of my fingers.  She suggested aqua, so I got some aqua solid, and added some machine embroidery on the front

And appliqued some English paper pieced hexies onto the back - all in calm, grownup aqua and grey

But I know that she has three young daughters, and there will be times when they want to use it, so I made the bag reversible, with some lovely bright girly I-spy fabrics on the inside

I did also get three aqua flannels, and I embroidered the girls' names on one each, but I don't seem to have a photo of them
