A Kindle case
When Robert and I flew out for my mom's graduation last month, his Kindle was just floating around in my backpack with no case to protect it, so I decided that what he needed was a case for it. I got this fabric in a scrap pack from Hawthorne Threads, and Robert had admired the boy going to outer space with his dog. Since one of Robert's favorite genres is science fiction, I decided it was a perfect fit for his Kindle. I mostly followed this tutorial at Live, love, quilt. I made it to the Kindle's measurements (different from the iPad in the tutorial), decided not to quilt it, and used a hair-tie for the button loop. I was worried about making the loop the right length, so I wanted to use something stretchy rather than fabric. I'm mildly concerned about the elastic breaking or stretching out, but if that happens I can always pick apart the top-stitching and replace it.
