handmade kindle sleeve

FINAL-Kindle-2

I’m very excited for this post. I received an Amazon Kindle for Christmas, and it certainly has changed my life. Ok, maybe that’s an overstatement, but I’m already 90% done [kindle keeps track of percentage] with my January book, and we aren’t even in the last days of the month.

I decided to thank my kindle by creating a lovely sleeve for it.

The fabric was initially for a laptop sleeve that I planned on making last year, but someone stole that laptop, and the replacement was a different size. The inside is padded with some quilting batting, and lined with a lovely green and blue paisley pattern.

Snug as a bug. I used this pattern, which you can download for free over at Sweetie Pie Bakery.

Also, this is my first time hand embroidering. What do you think?

I drew the pattern on some grid paper and stitched over it. Some of the stitches are a little too long, or loose, beginners mistake.

I hope some of you try this at home, it really was super easy and a cheaper alternative to those pricey Kindle cases.
