Kindle craft

After introducing my Kindle yesterday, I thought I should also show you the protective sleeve I made for it at the weekend.

Now you see it...

Now you dont!

I used some leftover IKEA fabric and lined the inside with some cute polka dot brown fabric. I had in mind something slightly more sophisticated than that (although I am quite a novice sewer) but my vintage sewing machine (kindly donated by Mr T's nan) has been playing up lately. I sat down with it on my balcony on Sunday ready to assemble this pouch but the sewing machine had other ideas. (Swear) Words were exchanged, Mr T was called to the rescue but to no avail. So I ended up having to stich it by hand and gave up the idea of a pretty button/closing at the top.

Anyhow, this will still do the job and save my Kindle from scratches whilst lying at the bottom of my hand bag. And, I have (ever so slightly) reduced the size of my fabric stash!! Double hurray!

Great cover! What a shame about your sewing machine playing up.
