I have seen one done with a clam shell pattern that looked beautiful but I don't do that sort of patchwork. Crazy Patchwork is more my style and so I made up a base of green fabrics to tone in with the case.
After I had completed the crazy patchwork, I used freezer paper as a template for the size of the top of the case and ironed under the edges.
I bought some Clover curved needles to sew the crazy patchwork to the top of the case.

The curved needles were a little fiddly to use but they actually worked very well.

Here are a couple of close up photos of the top.
You may have noticed that the name I have embroidered on the top is not mine, that is because I made it for a dear friend of mine for her birthday. Sue actually changed my life by introducing me to patchwork all those years ago.
Who knows if I'll ever get around to making one for myself? Life is still busy here while I am minding my granddaughter Savannah during the week. She is a delight but very tiring and loves helping me around the house! It's hard to believe that she is now nine months old.
