I made it ... Kindle Kozy!

Well my dh named this a Kindle Kozy so that is what it is lol. I think he just thought he was brilliant with his alliteration. Which, of course I thought he was, too. Though I may be a bit biased! hehe. I was so ridiculously proud of this thing, let me tell you. Remember how proud I was of doing zippers? Well... multiply that by 100 and I am staring happily at my beautiful fabric and my beautiful kindle safe and secure inside its new little home!

I found this great tutorial from Tammy, at Not Just a Housewife. She hosts a Sew with me Saturday and I am so glad I did find it! Her pics were easy for a beginner like me to follow and I took her idea and directions for an ipod or phone case and made the Kindle Kozy out of it.

I made mine using two fat quarters from the Michael Miller Antiquity collection, which I adore and thought it went so well for a reading device or bag.





Yep, I actually made that and I sorta love it! :)

  6. That's awesome. I might do something like that for my lap top. I'd rather a pretty bag with cushion than what is available in stores. Thank you for the inspiration!

  12. Your kindle cozy is so pretty, I love those fabrics. I made a jacket for my e-reader and it is so nice not to have to worry when I throw it in my bag that it might get scratched.

  23. I want to see a picture of the back! Did you scrunch up the back and use 2 different patterns as well? I love this one and want to make it tonight! Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
