Stuff for other people

Occasionally, I make stuff for other people, and even more occasionally than that, I get paid for it.

One of Boyfriend’s friends liked the look of the Nintendo DS case I made for him, and asked if I could make a couple. They are for him and his girlfriend.

They are both made from wool suiting scraps I have, and the linings are made from old dress remnants (pixels) and quilting cotton (polkas). They are padded out with a thin layer of cotton wadding, and finished with vintage buttons from my stash.

I really didn’t intend for them to be so gender specific, and I’m a bit grossed out at my subconscious. That said, I really like the pink one. I pretend it’s because of the soft magenta wool, but my mind is probably messing with me, it’s because it’s pink.
