my honey has recently taken up the ukelele. she has a red one and his name is eustace. she plays him all the time, and it’s basically the cutest thing i have ever seen:
he had a soft case that came with him from the shop, but it was kind of boring, and i have been promising for weeks now to make him a new one, with a little more personality. last weekend i came good on that promise:
it was a lot of fun to make this from scratch without a pattern – it definitely boosted my confidence in “freestyle” sewing (for want of a better term!).
it even has a little pocket for her pitch pipe, though i still have to sew a button on there so it doesn’t escape.
sajee says that eustace is now he best dressed ukelele in the land – hee hee!
