Kindle Cover

For Christmas my husband bought me a Kindle Paperwhite (I love it!) and I have it on my to do list to make a cover.   I was going to make one from scratch but when I had a look around my local Goodwill store the other day I came across this one for $3.00.  It was brand new still in package, got to love a deal!  It is super boring but has a great little magnetic tab to keep it closed.  

I traced out the shape of the cover on some batting and cutting it about a 1/2" smaller then the actual cover.  I used some Essex Linen and a Buck Stag print from the Echino line.  I just love the Bucks with glasses, who could not fall in love with this fun fabric!  I stitched some simple straight lines on the front and back.  I was going to actually stitch through the black cover all around the edge but it was just to thick.  Plus I tried it and the machine protested. not good. 

I added a bit of flannel on the inside to just clean it up a bit, even though I did tuck the raw edges in before I glued it on to the black cover.  I am really happy with how it came out.  It is really nice to complete something in a single day. Don't you agree?

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
