Just finished a new iPad Slipcase and it’s Artrage themed! Artrage for those of you who are not familiar is an amazing painting program which gives you a genuine traditional feel. 

It’s taken two weeks to complete, and I’m extremely happy with the finished product. On the front side you have the program interface with all it’s tools, menus and settings and the logo on the back. The front is covered by a soft plastic so that you can actually draw right on the case! (with washable markers of course) 

This is a custom made, hand stitched 100% recycled material iPad Slipcase, made on commission. If you are interested in one for yourself please drop me a note for the details!

My Brother’s new iPad slipcase! He specifically ordered Tiny Wings, his favourite app :)

(photos taken with my ipad, so they aren’t all that great. Will update with better quality ones sometime this week)

This cute little guy was created for my first project in my Green Crafts program in Maple Ridge.

Used straws for the arms and legs, a bit of stuffed fabric for the hands and head and more fabric for his hair. Old plastic Easter eggs for the feet and nose, a toilet paper roll for the neck and a Coconut Milk can for the body. And lots and lots of string! :)

The winter here are quite chilly and the water bottles cools so quickly. That’s why I made this cute little cover for mine.

Used an old baby’s blanket for the soft outer shell, an old t-shirt inside to give it a nice double layer. An old yellow hair elastic for the clip.

A little pair of covers I’ve made for household gadgets. The Kindle belongs to my older brother, the iPod Touch is mine.

I’ll have to start making my iPad 2 cover tomorrow! :O)

So, I managed to burn my original lampshade. Nothing surprising, just another excuse to get a little creative. Now you know why I always keep fabric scraps!

A cute little wizard I made while teaching one of my After School Craft classes. I also had a princess but she stole the heart of a little girl who took her home.
