Friday Finish: Kindle Paperwhite Cover
It's been a bit of a washout of a week, sewing wise. We are truly back full swing into school, pickups, extra curricular activities, and all the extra work that comes with it. It means I have had to take the week to get myself organised and have had very little sewing time. But today I finally got around to a project I've been meaning to do for a long time: a Kindle Paperwhite cover. My friend asked me ages ago to make one for her but I took much longer than I meant to.
I made it in a similar style to one I made previously for myself but had to adjust the measurements a little to get a nice snug fit as mine is a Touch which is a tiny bit bigger, and my own one is a bit loose for my liking. There is a little internal pocket behind where the screen is held which can hold the charging lead if necessary.
I used some of Julia Rothman's fabulous typewriter fabric as the feature point in the cover design, and let it wrap all the way around to the back. The contrast is some grey Glimma, which I straight line quilted to add texture. I really like how the fabrics work together.
This is a simple design to make, but I am really happy with it and it was a nice quick finish once I figured out my measurements. I just need to make a second one now and then both will be off to my friend.
