Using Penny and Kerry's sweet Latte to Go foundation/paper piecing pattern from Sew-Ichigo, I made the take out cup block a few weeks ago. I just love how perfect Berene's 'Say What?' text fabric is for the lid! You can find that fabric in her Spoonflower shop. Berene cleverly spaced all of the fun sayings 1/2" apart so that they can be fussy cut and used for piecing into projects like this one without losing any of the text!
For the first time I tried a new "all-in-one" Velcro that has hooks and eyes all on one strip. Way less scratchy and it was much easier to sew on by machine. The surrounding fabric is a lovely chambray that I'm also going to use in a new bag I'm assembling today.
Mom loves her lattes and she's pretty smitten with her new iPad cover, too. I had to make it larger than most tutorials as she's got a protective case that takes her iPad up to a full 8" x 10". You can find tutorials on Faith's and Amber's blogs...I just sort of adapted ideas they both had to suit my pre-made block and the size I needed. The outer fabric is interfaced with a fusible pellon poly batting.
