Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Yellow

Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) I am here with my creation for Crafty Ribbons Yellow Challenge. I had this gorgeous material with bold yellow stripes amongst the colours and embellished using yellow accents. You can find the tri stripe ribbon here and the Polka dot button here. I used Papermania Fat Quarter Fabric in brights, the button and ribbon are linked above from Crafty Ribbons and Cotton Batting for padding out my case. I started by measuring my ipod, and cutting out two lengths of fabric-to cover the device and enough for a flap to button up. I cut the same from the cotton batting. I then cut a 1inch rectangle of fabric for my button clasp. I started by folding this over on itself with the rough edges inside the retangle and stitched on a sewing machine ready to go later on.
I folded one length of fabric so I could see where the middle of the case was and then sewed on my catch. I then pinned my case, leaving a gap at the bottom to turn the right way out. Once this was stitched and pulled the right way out I then got my ipod and saw where the fabric met the top of my device. I stitched each side to make the pouch, then the flap folded down on top. Lastly I hand sewed my polka dot button on, making sure to sew where the catch would finish to give a secure finish.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
