Hot Water Bottle Cover: Done

I’ve finished the hot water bottle cover.  This is a project I started in my sewing course on Thursday.  It is destined to be a Christmas present for hubby’s Gran (I am not sure who else in the family would use a hot water bottle, so I made it with her in mind).  What you cannot quite see from the photos below is the fact that it is lined with red and white spotty material.  No one will ever see the lining, but I know it’s there!  Also my quilting isn’t very straight but hey, it’s my first attempt at quilting!

What I have learned from the project is that I need to slow down with my sewing to try and be a little more accurate…  Apart from the fact the quilting was good fun and looked cool, I also enjoyed making my own binding for the straight edges (striped bit below).  It was really simple and a nice effect.
