**Update - I've been so happy to see the comments on this post and see that my fears of no one wanting this were unfounded so I went ahead and made a second cover today. When I announce the winner of this I'll choose two and both will get a cute, stylish cover.**
When I put out my call for projects Carla answered with a high chair re-cover request. I've been wanting to work on a high chair for a while now but I think you need to use some sort of plastic fabric that can be easily wiped clean. I considered laminated fabric but it's really expensive, I've never seen it in Canada and I hear that it cracks over time. One day in Fabricland I happened to wander over to the vinyl section thinking I'd just see what they had. I was pleasantly surprised and found a really cute black and white damask pattern. I've never worked with vinyl so I bought the smallest amount they'd let me and brought it home to sew a few lines. My few lines test was successful and I'm now convinced that it will work like I want. The vinyl on the roll is really wide which is great but means my small amount was really a thin, long strip. I didn't want to waste the strip and I figured if I sewed a project with it I'd be that much more comfortable working on the high chair. The passport cover is what I came up with.
It has a cute ruffle down the front to add a little something and it has black edging. I think it looks classy and a great place to store your generic passport. The inside is plain black fabric.
Here's a view from the back
I've decided to give this beauty away (hopefully someone wants it and I don't have an un-commented on giveaway, wouldn't that be embarrassing.)
To enter just become a follower and leave me a comment letting me know you did. If you're already a follower comment and tell me. That's it, easy. I'll pick a winner and ship this off, it would make a great stocking stuffer don't you think?
I also have another fun giveaway I want to post but I have to get my act together and actually make the item first so stay tuned.
As a side note, isn't it funny how projects come in waves? Three weeks ago I was out of projects and now I can't seem to keep up with everything I want to do.
