Rita Barakat, Clover & Kunin Blog Hop

Welcome to the Rita Barakat, Clover and Kunin Blog Hop!
This is a short hop but one full of amazing inspiration.
I'm so excited to show you my tablet case! This is a little different for me and I love the results.
So let's get started.
I used Rita's Sassy Sue, Kunin felt sheets and Clover's wool roing with their Felting Needle Mat and Felting Tool.

I stamped Sassy Sue, colored her with alcohol markers. I scanned the Sassy Sue and created a png file to print on an inkjet transfer sheet. Please note, always follow the artist's Angel Policy. I contacted Rita and confirmed this method was within her Angel Policy.

I digitally added a sunburt background to the image and resized to 4" x 4" . I then trimmed a scrap of canvas fabric to 5" x 5". I followed the instructions of the transfer sheet and heat pressed with an iron.

I trimmed the Kunin felt sheets to create the tablet case and used a blanket stitch along with decorative cross stitches.
I used Clover's Roving Wool to create flowers and to interlace felt leaves.

Here is the back of the case with cross stitches.

I added a pocket and added more flowers with cross stitches. I punched a hole and added an eyelet and added an elastic loop for the closure.

To protect the tablet from eyelet scratches, I added a felt donut to cover the eyelet in the inside of the pocket. I used Beacon's Felt Glue to adhere.

I found a silver button on my sewing table and used it for the closure. I used white embroidery floss to add decorative stitches on the leaves and cross stitches.

I slightlty frayed the canvas edges and hand stitched Sassy Sue to the cover.
And there you have it, my Sassy Sue tablet cover.
