MADE TO FIT YOUR UKULELE:
If your uke is bigger than a standard sopranos in these images then this is a great option for you. I have made many cases for different shaped uke's and love to do so which is why I created this listing. If you'd like to find out more about how this process works, simply message me and let the conversation begin :-)

CHOOSE YOUR BLANKET:
Colours and patterns on custom ordered cases will vary according to the blankets I have on hand at the time of ordering. If you'd like to find out what is available before placing your order simply message me and I'll send you pics.

THE INSPIRATION:
After seeing many beautiful old blankets in op shops time and time again, some with holes or burn marks but still with loads of character... I decided these beautiful old blankets needed to be given a new purpose, transformed into statement pieces. That is what inspired this repurposed blanket collection of totes, satchels, sleeves and guitar & uke cases. When using my own repurposed blanket totes the remarks I receive are amazing, they are eye catching and great conversation starters! This is also the feedback I receive regularly from purchases of my range.

Selling at artisan markets, it is interesting to see the number of people that simply cannot not resist engaging with my repurposed blanket totes and guitar cases. They're practical, unique and even nostalgic for some... taking them down memory lane back to a time when they once had a blanket just like it on their bed. I have given these blankets a new sense of purpose and brought their character out in the open for all to enjoy once again!

ABOUT THE CASE
The green ukulele case pictured was custom made for a Mahalo brand Soprano Ukulele. The yellow & Aqua cases pictured were made for the Kahua & Ashton brands, Soprano Ukulele. The outer layer is made from a salvaged woollen blanket. The lining is made from cotton fleece. The trim is a poly/cotton bias and finish the case off it is adorned with a kangaroo leather 'by marie-nicole' label. All blankets are washed thoroughly, hung out in the sun for several days for natural steralizing and airing. All cases are sewn using heavyweight thread on an industrial sewing machine.
