So for our anniversary my awesome hubby bought me a Kindle Fire! I have been using the thing NON stop!! I love reading books from it and being able to search the internet too! The only bad thing...it's hard to find a cute case that doesn't cost way more than I want to spend...so it gave me a perfect excuse to rummage through my fabric bin and get sewing! Keep reading to learn how to make your own kindle case! Don't have a kindle? You can easily change the measurments to fit a smart phone, ebook or even a laptop.
Measure the size of the electronic you want to cover and add 1 inch for your 1/2 inch seam allowance on each side . EXAMPLE: my kindle fire measured (rounding up) about 8 in. X 5 in. I cut my pieces at 9 in. X 6 in. Cut out your desired size flap. I measured mine at 5 in. X 3in.
Place the softer side of your velcro on one our your flap pieces and sew in place.
Place the flap piece with the velcro on it on top of your batting. Place the other flap piece on top of the one with the velcro (pretty sides together) Sew. Turn right side out and top stitch. ( I must not have taken a picture of his step....sorry!)
Place your flap in the middle of one of your main fabric pieces and sew in place.
( Make sure you place right sides together)
Sew the other piece of velcro to the other piece of your MAIN fabric. I placed my velcro about 3 inches down from the top.
Place your two main pieces right sides together with both pieces of your batting on the outside. You should have batting, fabric, fabric and then batting. Sew around the bottom and down both sides. Turn right side out.
Lay your two lining pieces right sides together and sew down both sides and across the bottom, BUT this time make sure you leave a small opening to pull your case through.
Insert your kindle case into your lining.. You guessed it! Right sides together again! Match up your side seams and sew around the top edge of your case.
Pull your case through the opening. Pinch your opening closed and sew.
Put your lining into your bag and top stitch around the top of your case.
You can make a Rolled Fabric Flower for a little embellishment if you like. You can find my tutorial for the flower HERE!
