I am really excited to do my very first post here on Curds n Whey! My husband and I are going on a trip soon and being the avid readers that we are, we recently bought kindles so that we wouldn't have to pack a bunch of books. I wanted to make something cute for my kindle to go in so I headed to the fabric store to buy some really cute fabric and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it. Its cute, yet functional.
Here is what you will need:
7 inch zipper
Two pieces of out side fabric measuring 9x61/2
Two pieces of inside fabric measuring 9x61/2
Two pieces of felt or fleece measuring 9x61/2
Two pieces of interfacing measuring 9x61/2
After you have ironed your fleece/felt to your outside fabric lay it down on a work surface with the outside fabric facing down. Line your zipper along the side measuring 61/2 inches making sure the top of the zipper is facing down. Then line up your inside fabric and lay it on top of your zipper and outside fabric. Make sure your inside fabric is face down as well.
Sew along the edge making sure you go through all three layers. Outside fabric, zipper, and inside fabric.
See my seam there along the right side? Repeat those steps sewing your other two layers of fabric to your zipper.
Push your inside fabric down inside your case and you are finished!!! Now you have a super cute case to carry your kindle around in!
