Here’s a little to know about Leah:
Favorite Color: This is a hard one. I love Deep Burgundy red, and rich deep purple and Rich Royal blue, and and and the list goes on, but I think those are the top though.
Interests: Well obviously crafting, and quilting. I also love photography, reading, biking, ultimate Frisbee, being a mom and wife, nature and once again the list goes on.
Something that makes me me: I’d have to say Giraffes. I LOVE them and collect anything to do with them. I know it’s a little strange, but nobody that knows me can see anything giraffe without thinking of me. [and she’s never won anything before!!]
I first thought the giraffe motif was particularly awesome when I went window shopping at Jonathan Adler in San Francisco and my friend showed me the most adorable giraffe lamp. So, when Leah emailed me about her affinity for the lurpy-legged creature, I knew I had to incorporate it somehow.
I’m not sure why I thought of doing a travel tissue case, maybe because I saw it recently on Martha, but maybe in the back of my mind I thought, “Leah likes her kid, who might get a runny nose from time to time.” So there you go. I made the case.
On the back side of the case, I stitched a little giraffe for her. I really like how this turned out, and I just enough vinyl to make another one. For me!
