Quilt With Us

(Wow, two posts from me in one day.  I'm on a roll!)  Here's a Kindle cover I recently rushed to make one evening.  It is not an original idea, but I didn't have a pattern - just winged it, so it's a little rough.  It isn't quite finished, as it doesn't have a closure yet.  And there are things I'd change if I were to do it over again.  I wouldn't use the obnoxious white elastic strips again, but they were all I had at the time.  I would also make the strap on the back wider.  I used iron-on Pellon for a little padding on the blue flannel inside and iron-in craft stiffener interfacing for the outside cotton fabric.  I also used a couple layers of thin cardboard inserts (like what would be used in the bottom of a tote bag) for protection and substance.

Yes.  They are 1/4" white elastic straps.

Very Nice! I like that it will protect the screen from bumps. I made a cover without the cardboard and the touchscreen is activated sometimes while it is in my bag.

That's very nice, I didn't know it could stand up!

It's very clever; I like the fact that it stands up too.  My DH and I have similar conversations about "ugly fabric" too.  He likes very bright projects (Is he color-blind?) and scoffs at my subdued neutral choices.

I love it, like the the others if you wouldn't mind I would like the pattern you used.  It is great. Oh I like the fabric also.

Colleen, I'll give it a shot, but you'll have to give me a few days.
