At the beginning of the summer, my daughter was getting ready to go on a short trip with her grandmother and cousin to Gatlinburg. The morning that we were supposed to take her over to my mother-in-law’s house, I decided she needed a case for the Kindle that she received for her birthday. Yeah, I’m kind of a spur of the moment kind of gal (and I wonder where my kids get their last minute ideas:). Of course, I didn’t have a pattern for an e-reader. Just as an aside, I did not finish it in time for her trip. (Sometimes, I just forget that I am not a sewing superstar).
I took some scraps left over from my favorite fabrics (Rivoli girl) and pieced them together into a rectangle big enough to make a sleeve for the Kindle. I did some organic quilting without any real plans. All in all, I’m please with how it turned out even if it wasn’t what I envisioned. I had wanted to have a flower closure that either closed with velcro or that was hooked on a cord that wrapped around a button; I couldn’t figure out how to get the flower to keep the shape so in the end I appliquéd it to a flap that snaps shut on the case.
