However, my 3-month-old sewing machine decided it was time to have a tantrum and scratched the top cover fabric, on the very last step of assembling the project. Gah!! The resulting cover did not meet my quality standards and I communicated to Lindsey that I would re-do it.
She was so patient -- through all my sewing machine troubles (I had to exchange the lemon for a new one!), re-ordering fabric and re-making the order (by that point, competing with other due custom orders)-- that I decided to make her a little complementary zipper pouch with the leftover fabric, as a little "thank you" gift. It turned out so cute and I hope she's enjoying her set!
