I challenged myself to make something new last week - a Kindle pouch.
It's just a bigger take on the phone pouch I made myself a while back, but needed to have a flap and some sort of fastening so the Kindle doesn't fall out.
Also, it was for a male friend, so I couldn't just go for my usual flowery fabrics.
And here it is!
Luckily I had some of this funky boy fabric with cars and bikes and boats and planes, which is great for a small feature panel. It also matched in with the chequered fabric and I went with the traditional blue and red fabrics for the main construction.
This is the back, with two panels. I pinked them round the edges and stitched on with a zig-zag stitch. There is a layer of batting and the lining is a plain calico.
A Formula 1 car on the front and the flap has a press-stud for easy opening (and also because I had no velcro).
I used measurements from a tutorial online and it actually came out a little long for the Kindle, but it does the job.
