Sew and Tell

This week I did a few more Kindle/Nook covers, which are now listed in my etsy shop. They are really fun to make.


This next one is my favorite. The quilting is linear, since I had it in mind for maybe a male who would think diagonal quilting to be fruffy. The result is ruggedly handsome, much like my Curly.
Flower is officially a middle schooler. When I said: "You're in middle school now. How cool!" she looked at me with minimal expression and said: "I know, right?" Ah, the tween years; they're gonna be awesome!
Go check out Amy's blog for some more great ideas!

Those are darling! Do you make them ipad size too? My sister just bought one and that would make a really cute cover.

These are so cool. What a great idea to make a more plain one, as well as the great patterns.

These are awesome. Now I really need to make one for my laptop! My dearest and littlest one took embroidery scissors, in about a 30 second moment, made scratches on my laptop. Dang kids are fast! OK, off I go to make a cover and hide all scissors!!

I can't believe you haven't made a WW 3-month journal cover yet.

These are really great. Do you know how an iPad compares in dimensions to the Kindle or Nook.

Love the Kindle covers but I am laughing at the Flower comment: "I know, right?" Hilarious!
