Old Photos, New Post.. Derwent Inktense on Fabric

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to who ever and where-ever you are from.
Here in NZ our Christmas Day is drawing to a swift close, it has just gone 10pm and our house is quiet!
I've been looking around my computer folders and came across some photos of when I was playing around with inktense colour pencils on fabric, comparing using water to fabric medium, and whether or not to use a dry or wet pencil, and whether or not to use dry or wet fabric.
So I'll just leave you with a bucket load of photos, because after two whole Christmas Dinners and a day of hanging out with the best families in the world, this is what I'm sure you and I will both enjoy!

My momma's iBop case

I finished this wee gem a little while ago now, but wanted to share it with you while I have the photos at hand!
It is a quilted case for my Mum's iPad (and detachable keyboard)
I used some super awesome pansies, my Nan always loved them and always had them in her garden.
I bound it all in a red bias binding (this is a BIG thing for me) so I could get around that curved part.
and to top it off I added a dividing panel to protect the keyboard and Ipad screen, a lined zipper pocket for the colour coordinated ear phones, and an elastic band to keep it all closed up nicely.
I didn't have a pattern for it, so I had to borrow the hardware for a weekend! But I'm super pleased with how it came out.
Enjoy the piccies!
