And I made this too

For Christmas this year hubby got me a Kindle Fire.  I am in love with it!  He got me a cover to keep it in, but after seeing so many cute covers on Pinterest I wanted to make my own.  I looked at several different possibilities and finally decided on this one from The Cottage Home.

I couldn't get a picture from her blog, so this is the one I made... :)

I think the is the best tutorial I have ever seen.  She goes step-by-step with very clear and helpful pictures, and everything is explained really well.  She even shows what your pieces will look like after each step.  It is a cover with a lining, and this is the first tutorial I've seen where I actually understood how to put the lining in.  !!!!  Now the tutorial is for a laptop case, but her instructions for how to calculate the size of your pieces is very easy to follow, so it's no problem at all adjusting it for any device.  I imagine you could even do it for something as small as an iPhone or iPod if you have the patience.. There are one or two things I would do different if I make it again (like trimming the edges of the lining before putting it in and using velcro instead of buttons), but overall I am pleased with how it came out.  :)

Hmm... I think I'll try some of these next to go along with the dress...
