I just finished up this project that I want to share. My boyfriend is a drummer in a few bands, western swing & late 40’s blues/rock & roll, and he asked if I would make him a travel case for his cymbals. I decided to make a bag of felt, lined with a heavy-weight canvas. He requested that it have his monogram like the classic drum heads did back in the good old days and I happily obliged.
Here is the inspiration for the monogramed shield appliqué: the one and only Gene Krupa’s drum head.
Here it is, the finished product:
I’m pleased with how it turned out and my honey is happy too!
All is well in sewing land!
