This is a project I have been wanting to share, but did not dare. It was a gift for my mom. She reads my blog on occasion, so I did not want to spoil the surprise.
Diana Lampe's book, Embroidery for All Seasons, is still one of my favorite resources. I used her directions for the fuchsias and for the cottage pinks. However, I changed the colors a bit to match those on the case.
When I have more time, I will share the trick I used to embroider the J monogram and to stitch such a precise wavy line along the bottom-left seam. (I am SO thankful for the positive reviews posted on Amazon.com for J. Marsha Michler's book, The Magic of Crazy Quilting. My husband bought the book for me for Christmas because of those reviews and it is my other favorite resource!)
For the back of this case, I used pink Oregon State University fabric. The lining is a soft pink gingham flannel.
Thanks again for stopping by!
