I have been wanting to make a cover for my Kindle Touch
I grabbed a piece of fabric my friend Lynn Douglass sent me last year that I have been coveting and saving for something special!
I cut the size slightly larger than the Kindle
put some timtex on either side, added two pieces of batting over those then put a piece of fabric over that to
make the inside pretty
to give it some umpf.
I didn't do a separate binding, I just did an old fashioned 'rolled hem'.
next I stiched down the elastic straps.
I only had white elastic so I used my black acrylic ink & dyed them , it worked a treat!
quilted in the ginko leaves
and sewed on the original Kimona button my friend
gave me for Christmas a long time ago.
I did give it a few dabs of ink to darken the red to match the red in the fabric better
I thought the script on the fabric was way too perfect! The alphabet!
When I make another one I will add more batting on both sides to make it easier to quilt.
I stopped the top stitching and carried the thread to the other side of the word block. Once done I liked how it looked so much I left the threads connected.
