I have a fun post up on the Therm O Web Blog today, making a quick but cute kindle cover, make sure you go and check it out:)

Do you still need a quick last-minute gift, or something quick to make that special gift even better?  Well here is a quick Kindle cover that I made for my daughter, I can’t wait to give it to her.

Solid: Kona Cotton in charcoal
chipboard (optional for making your case a bit sturdier)
Ribbons: May Arts
Step 1:  Gather supplies, cut a piece of solid, flannel and HeatNBond Fusible fleece 12″x 8.5″.  Iron the fleece to the inside of the Solid cotton.

Step 2: Apply Heat N Bond lite to your 7 scraps of fabric.  Cut out Hexagons, apply to the Sew in Fleece and sew around all edges at 1/8″.  Cut close to the edges leaving a small white space around the edge.  Sew your hexagons to the front cover of your case.

Step 3:  Select 4 different ribbons for the corners, these will hold your device in place.  Sew them down 2″ over on each side.  Select another ribbon for your ties and cut 2 12″ pieces, place them in the middle of the 8.5″ side.
Step 4:  Sew the cover to the inside facing together making sure you catch the ribbon pieces.  Remember to leave a 3″ opening for turning.  Turn your case so both of the outsides are facing out, this is where you insert the chipboard pieces, 2 5″x8″ chipboard pieces, one for each side.  Stitch up your 3 inch opening and top stitch.
Step 5:  Sew down the center catching the loose ribbons on the inside.
