Got the Kindle covered
May 17, 2014 § 9 Comments
I made a Kindle cover! I had some mini charms lurking in my stash and this seemed like a good thing to make with them. It feels a bit granny. But whatever. I need to use up what I have.
A couple of weeks ago I stitched the squares together. And today I decided that I needed to finish one thing. Just one thing! I’m having such a hard time finishing anything these days.
All I did was trace around this Timbuk2 one that we have. Blatant copycat, I am. It works. Why re-invent the wheel?
What I used as the padding is this Soft & Stable that I have had sitting around for quite awhile. At the time, the shop only had it in black. Not the best to use with white fabric. But it’s what I had. It’s got a little foam in the middle. It’s not as sturdy as the Timbuk2 one, but it’s quite a bit better than plain old batting.
