A Kindle Cover

Mike replaced his broken Sony eReader with a Kindle 4 last weekend.  It survived a drop onto a hard floor yesterday, so I thought I would try making a padded cover for it.  I cannot claim the design - I bought a pattern from Whistlepig Creek Productions on Etsy.  You can see more of her great patterns at http://www.wpcreek.com/.  I am a girl in a hurry!  I have a backlog of bears waiting to be made.

I wanted to  come up with a colour scheme that wasn't 'girly'.  Most of my fabrics are very feminine. However, back in the autumn I bought a good selection of quilting fabrics with an autumnal theme.  I make no apology for the fact that the colours are unseasonal.  We still have 6 inches of snow outside and I didn't want to risk driving to the fabric shop.  Perhaps I'll make a few more (when I catch up with my bears) - one for each season!

I hope Mike will like it.


  1. What a great idea. I have a leather cover on my Kindle, but I also have a little 7" tablet that would do so well with a cover like this.

  2. Ha, I will convert the bear artists... :oD Sorry you had to buy a pattern though, if you'd asked, I'd have given you mine!

  3. What a great cover. It looks fab. with the Autumn leaves. Happy bear making
