A Kindle Case & a Winner
My dad asked me to make a cover for his Kindle using his favorite Heather Ross print from Spoonflower. It's incredible to me how small and thin these little devices are now. His measures 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" and only about 1/4" thick. Sewing a cover for something that tiny can be a little tricky since the opening of the case won't fit around the bed of the machine, so you have to get creative.
I kept things super simple. There's no extra quilting on here, and a simple Velcro closure holds it together.The pouch is lined with a Chicopee print by Denyse Schmidt which has always reminded me a bit of tire tracks. It took less than an hour to put this case together, and Dad loves it.
After reading all of your comments on my last post, including so many horror stories of broken and dying irons, I desperately wish that I could send you all a new toy for your sewing room. I can tell you that the new Durathon is available at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for about $39 if you're really needing a new one -- my friend Becky just bought one yesterday with a coupon for added savings. Score! Anyway, the winner of the drawing is Jesabelle who has the most adorable Etsy shop right here. Do stop by and pay her a visit.
Happy Wednesday to all of you!
