Kindle Cover

We went on a long-weekend vacation a couple of days ago.   As I was packing I looked at the kindle case I had made a year or so ago.  It was really lame, and my sewing has come along so much since then.  It was too tight, made out of a weird flannel, and had some truly bizarre bias-tape detail.  I wanted to make something better!

So I did a quick blog search and came across THIS POST from “The Sometime’s Crafter” from all the way back in September 2009.

I didn’t have time to make a patchwork case.  I did attempt one, but it was a disaster.  Considering I was working all of this out in the last possible minute before we left, I opted for one piece of fabric, but added a spider-web type quilting design.

Here are some pictures:

And here’s a rough sketch of the quilting design I used:
