Last week, I was secret squirrel sewing. I knew the Shropshire boys birthday was coming up, and I wanted to make him something. It was his turn for some home made goodness. He has had a kindle for almost a year now, and it really needed a cover to protect it. I was determined to make that cover.
So last week, in the one sitting, in between toddler demands for food and cuddles, I finally made the Shropshire boy a cover for his kindle. I was so chuffed at how great it turned out, I was buzzing. I was on a sewing high. But I could not tell anyone or show any photos on Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter or this blog. It had to remain a secret for almost a week. That was really hard.
I did show the kids, I had to show some one. Abbey, at 6 years old, was gorgeous and told me it was good and that daddy would love it. Gosh I love her.
Cam from CurlyPops has a fabulous tutorial How to make a Pouch for an Electronic Gadget that I used. I have had this tutorial printed out for a long time, waiting for just the right moment. I can make fabric zippered pouches with my eyes closed, but I have never made anything like this before.
Cam's tutorial is very easy to follow. Since making the kindle cover, I have made some wet-bags with the same method (minus the quilting and the padding, and I added a velcro closure) I will definitely be making more of these for our other electronic gadgets. Thanks Cam for a great tute!
Have a great Creative Space day. Or a Space Invader day.
