So I play the violin and really love it. I just graduated to the next size violin and got to go to the violin shop to pick out a new one. It’s so beautiful and sounds awesome. My mom and I thought it would be fun to sew a cover for my new violin the way real professional musicians use. We traced around my violin and sewed a little “pillowcase” but once we got it all sewn up we realized that we made a mistake! The neck was too narrow and the scroll wouldn’t fit through it.
At first we were disappointed with our mistake and thought about throwing the fabric into the scrap bin but then I had the idea to turn this mistake into something really fun. We flipped it inside out, sewed on some little bits to make it look like an awesome violin, sewed it up, stuffed it and then sewed on “strings”. It’s the coolest little violin pillow ever! You could make one like a guitar, a cello, or really anything. Next I’m going to make a bow and case out of fabric. I think that would be the best.
Ohh and we tried again and made a new cover for my violin too!
