Sewing: Kindle Case

When my husband bought the iPad for me, I gave him my Kindle. The iPad, however, is not a good thing to take to the beach as you cannot see the screen at all out in sunlight. So, I have a new Kindle to resolve the reading-on-the-beach problem.

Naturally, my Kindle needs something lovely to protect it. I used my own pattern to sew a case.

Obviously, I’m still using pieces of that same yard of mermaid fabric from which I’ve been sewing lately. I can milk a yard of fabric to within a millimeter of its little woven life. Thanks to Heather Ross (updated 03/27/13: thank you for letting me know I accidentally said Bailey instead of Ross), my projects are looking suitably summery.

You are using every single bit of that fabric! The result is an ultra-coordinated look, which I love.

It's such a pretty fabric, June, and so perfect for you! I just got a Kindle and my husband bought a leather case with a built in light for me for Mother's Day.

Love that you even made a little pocket for the cable!

Good call on adding a cable pocket for that guy - I really like it! And, that iPad. Pffftt - it turns off when the temps get over 85. I nearly threw it in the ocean in Hawaii when it did that. So, I prefer the Kindle for beach reading anyway :)

The monogram is the best idea and you gave me a few new inspirations.

The cover for the Kindle is just the prefect way to carry that thing around. I did not know you would not be able to see the iPad in the sunlight....on the beach....and very happy to have that bit of information.

In-fact I am appreciative for all the data your have offered.
