If there were a topic called, "Brag about your cleverness," I would post this there.
I just made this case cover for "Vera," my pineapple uke/first uke.

I like how it stays with the pineapple theme, and also how nicely you've placed the pattern on the cover.

That's great. A cover for the case, looks very nice. You know what I've always wanted....A basket case!

Cool...a case case!

A case cozy! Very nice.

I love this case--the way you used the fabrics (different for sides, pineapples centered in front) is superb! What a lovely case for a pineapple ukulele. Go ahead and boast a bit (but watch out, folks may start asking you to make one for their ukuleles)!

WOW!!! That is beautiful, Dinglebobbins! What a super idea! I love sewing, maybe you could teach me how to do this? I have a BRAND new Brother Project Runway sewing machine that I bought almost two years ago and I've yet to open the box! Isn't that awful?! I used to sew all of the time, but with having a farm and other duties as of late, spare time has been going to uke playing. ;-) I know the machine is there, though -- so, when the time comes, I have lots of projects I'd like to do (making dog beds, horse blankets...and now...thanks to you...uke cases!!!). :-)

Haha, wow! That's a really awesome job!
Were I a ukulele, that's how I would like to be dressed. :)

Ya know those Rattan cases are gonna be distributed by Saga. So they should be available soon. Is that what you meant? Or do you want to have children?

What a nice idea and you did a great job!

That is beautiful! I love the pineapples on it, I would be really proud of that! When I was planning to take my uke away for a weekend, a few years ago I relaised I'd need a case for it - could I get one? No...... any cases in the music shops were just not the right size for my Greg Bennett concert uke - so I decided to make one - I used PVC table -cloth material. I was pretty proud of that too! Perhaps I'll post a pic later! :)
