Hump day crafts: felt Kindle sleeve

After my last post, I was so inspired by the embroidery and sewing at Shiny Happy World that I thought I’d try something new (for me) for another birthday gift. My sister-in-law got a Kindle as a gift, so I thought I’d sew her up a simple sleeve for those days with complicated cases are just too complicated. (Or have been chewed on by the dog, which has already happened in their house.)

I downloaded a free electronic cozy pattern from Wendi (not currently available), and — inspired by her Rainbow Girls and the book How to Draw Fairies and Mermaids — I drew and embroidered a book fairy on the front. Sure, I need work on doing straight and even stitching (maybe I should get out my little hawaiian quilt and finish it for practice), but I still think it’s kinda cute. Maybe I’ll think of some more cute stuff to embroider.

Happy crafting!
