Kindle Cover

My eldest daughter treated herself to a Kindle last week and I just knew what was coming next!
" Mum can you make me a cover pleeeease????!!!"

Oh, ok then.... here it is:

It was fast, fun and easy.  I took a piece of gorgeous batik fabric, folded it in half and gave myself 1/2" all the way around the e-reader.

I used the same principal of bag making and added a lining,

Then I  used one of my girls hair bands and a pretty button to close the cover. The band is sewn in at the back and stretches over the button.

It's a really nice snug fit and will protect the Kindle when its not in use.

I have also been working on another project for my brother's birthday, it involves water lillies and here is a little sneak peak.

I'll show you that next time.
Happy Stitchin til then.

OMG that lily is amazing. You are so talented! I haven't tried fabric flowers, but I should, I could add some to my grand daughters quilt! I'm going to make an iPad cover before I go on vacation!
