First of all, I finally made myself a Facebook page for my blog! Go ahead and check it out, I'd love it if you "liked" my page! I'll be posting links to my blog whenever I update it. I'm also likely to post anything creative that I come across that I want to share. So get on over there!
Now, on to my most recent project!
I saw this great Kindle Case over at Sohl Design. I gota admit though, I didn't even look at her tutorial, I just winged it. But I saw it, and I had to make it! She gave me all the inspiration I needed!
Choose two coordinating fabrics.
From each fabric, cut out a long rectangular piece measuring 7 by 20 inches. You can leave your ends squared, round them off, or taper them. I chose to taper mine.
Place your fabrics pattern side in, and sew around the edges. Leave one end open.
Flip it right side out.
Fold the edges of your open side in, and sew a top stitch. Sew a top stitch along the other end also. This would be a good time to iron it.
Choose which side you want showing on the outside. I chose to have my black fabric on the outside. Fold it so your outer fabric is on the inside. Sew your side edges.
Turn your case right side out.
Sew on a button and make a button hole. If you're like me, and too lazy to learn how to use the button hole setting on your machine, then just use a really tight zig zag stitch for your button hole. It worked pretty well for me.
