I recently enjoy sewing small things with quick results. I really do enjoy the process of quilt making but every now and then there has to be a speedy little sewing project.
I have always wanted to make a case for my kindle... I suppose just to have one, because really the kindle is in a hard cover and protected enough... but a self made case is sooooo nice, right?
I made this from scraps, my scrap glasses really do inspire me as I see all my scraps every day. And since the storing space is limited I need to use them.
I used scraps in grey and orange, this is such a lovely colour combination (and matches the orange coloured kindle hard cover my husband got me together with the actual Kindle!)
The individual scrap pieces are 2 x 3'' big and sewing them together in rows of 5 x 4 created an almost perfect fit for the case already. I have used this tutorial as a guidance, but adjusted the flap to the whole width and measured the size of the kindle and added approx. 1inch to each side in order to estimate the size of the covers needed.
The kindle fits perfectly in it even though the I calculated the position of the velcro wrongly. I measured without the kindle being in the case, so now it just catches.
And as I was finished I thought I could have just added another row of scraps to the one case cover and not sewn the flap on separately.
But this is something I can adjust when I make a second case.
