Sew and Tell

This week wasn't quite as productive as last week. Then again, I don't think any week could live up to last week! I finished one thing: a Kindle cover for my mom.

I used hook and loop tape for the closure, since I wasn't sure how a magnet would affect it.
I also added some cardboard in it, to make it sturdy enough to protect the Kindle while on the go.

Just wait until next week. I figured out how to cut felt using my Cricut. I am so excited about it, and am counting down the minutes until Needles and Pins opens so I can get more felt. 52 minutes to go...

I'm linking up on Amy's blog again this week. Go check out the other fabulous projects!

Love the simplicity of it...sometimes I get carried away with scrappy-ness on those smaller projects.

I love this! It is so cute! Our daughter wants a Kindle, which I think we'll give her for graduation. What a great idea. Did you make this up? Will you do a tutorial? :-)
