Such an adorable little fella!  I agree with the others, he'd be great at protecting so many other things too.

Thank you so much everybody!  Grin
I have to say that I'm not the most skilled sewer in the universe yet, so the zipper was a real pain in the beh*nd. I worked on it for three days, while my homework just piled up into a cute little mountain beside my sewing machine. As you may see, the lining had to be stitched on in a kind of amateurish way, but it was the only way I could think of doing it then.

And yes I will definately make sure it doesn't run off Wink

1. I've been sewing for YEARS -- and I couldn't figure out how to do a U-shape zip in less time than you did.

2. "As you may see," --- no, we can't!  Grin All us sewists have these little glitches that only we can see. I say, if you can't notice it from a moving bus, it don't matter.

3. "kind of amateurish"  No way! you did a swell job. Give yourself credit! I will, when I swipe this design. Besides, only a dedicated artist would take 3 days.

This is a funny one! I love the shot of it in the bag, gives the case some personality. Absolutely lovely!
