Vintage meets modern technology

My very talented niece recently had a birthday.
I didn't quite know what to get for her so after some consultation with her mum and later on with her, it was decided that she needed a cover to protect her ipad when she carries it around in her bag.

She asked for 'red and purple' and my mind immediately went to a gorgeous vintage table cloth in my stash.

I don't have an ipad so Amber's tutorial was invaluable!!

I hope she loves it.
But if she doesn't, I might just have to buy myself an ipad so I can keep it for myself!

Happy birthday Emily Delicious!!
