The End of February 2013

Here we are at the end of February and I'm very pleased about that.  I'm ready for spring!
One of my daughters had a birthday this month and I made her a case for her Kindle.  She requested blue so that decision was made for me.

I looked through my fabrics and decided to cut strips 1 1/2" wide and at least an inch wider than the Kindle.  I sewed several different fabrics together, ironed them, measured and cut to size.  Folded in half, this fabric would be the front and back of the bag.  I placed the pieced fabric wrong side up and cut two pieces of batting to size for the front and back.  I added a strip of fabric to each side lengthwise.  Then I placed the fabric piece right sides together with a lining fabric I had chosen, blue of course!  I turnd the piece right side out and put valcro on the underside of the flap.  I added a hand crafted button Ronnie had made and there you go!  It's done!!  I'll probably make more of these, it's a good way to use up fabric scraps and I have plenty of those.  I'm sorry I didn't take photos of the process, maybe next time and I'll post them.
