Time to make a fun little protective case for your kindle or other electronic reader. Custom make this case to fit your device like a glove.
- Batting (I used a piece that was 7”x17”)
- Rotary mat and cutter
- Fabric pins
- Ribbon (1/2” wide)
Cut strips of fabric to sizes of your liking and sew the strips together, making a piece large enough to cover the device with about an inch and a half extra where the seams will go.
Cut a piece of backing fabric a little larger than the batting and pin all three pieces together.
Quilt as desired.
Fold the quilted fabric wrong side outwards and slide the device in between the folds. Pin around the sides, leaving about a quarter of an inch of space between the pins and the device. Sew down the sides of the case where the pins are.
Trim seams down to half an inch.
Insert device into case and take note of where the end of the kindle is…
Trim off the excess fabric to leave one-quarter of an inch longer than the end of the device was.
Cut two pieces of ribbon about 3 and 1/2 inches each.
Pin ribbons like so onto the case under binding.
Pin binding right sides together (I used 1 and 1/2 inch strips leftover from another project).
Sew binding to case, leaving about two inches at the beginning and end.
Fold one edge of fabric upwards like shown and then overlap the remaining binding on top of it. Pin and sew.
Trim off excess fabric and ribbon.
Finish binding by folding the raw edges over and using an invisible ladder stitch.
Add buttons to opposing side of case.
