I have had a need to do some utilitarian sewing lately. I joined our local city band a month or so ago and we have two concerts tomorrow. Because these concerts are out and about, we need to bring our own music stands. I hate having to try to hang on to my music stand, and my music, and my horn as I am walking, so I decided to make a cute little case for my music stand. And while I was at it, made a cute little draw string bag for my valve oil and slide grease.
I of course chose cherry fabric (I know, you're all shocked) and red polka dots and threw together this little case. In hindsight I would have done a few things differently, but considering I just threw it together, I don't think it turned out too bad, and it serves it's purpose. And now I can travel to my concerts in style! (now if only my French Horn would fit in the trunk of the Miata, I could REALLY travel in style *wink*)
