Zip Around Case for Kindle 3G

When I started making the zip around case for your ipod, iphone and other cell phones and electronic gadgets, I said I was also going to make them in larger sizes for your kindle and other e-readers, and also for ipads, etc.

This morning was the time of promise!

The exterior of the case has the vertical zippered section (unpadded) and the detachable wristlet strap and the zipper around three sides of the case.
The inside features several pocket sections - on the left side, there is a fabric pcoket and a netting pocket.
On the right there is a pocket for storing your kindle when not in use, and then each corner has tabs to hold the kindle in place when you want to use it.
The case is padded with a heavy weight fleece, and there is a waterproof barrier in between.
I don't personally own a kindle, so once I find someone willing to let me use theirs for a photo, I will get that picture and list this in my etsy shop.
Next on the agenda will be the case for the ipad, so stay tuned!

Of all the things I should be doing.....

Making a purse for myself usually isn't too close to the top of the list.

I have signed up for more craft shows this year, so I should be building inventory. I have a several room project for a good friend of mine, that I need to get done. Just today I got a call from another friend looking to have some home decor stuff done.

So last night, rather than doing what I needed to do, I made a new purse for myself. I'm carrying an oversized patchwork purse that I made last fall. I just thought it was time for something else.

It's short and wide - I'm not going to make any comparisons....

Love the colorful print!

March On!

February was one of those months where there was something going on every weekend. I looked at my March calendar and nothing special was scheduled other than yesterday where I got together with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday (it was in February).

So I started out this past week thinking I was going to get all kinds of things done.

Alas, it was not to be. Somehow my week just disappeared and I didn't spend any quality time sewing.

The one thing I did finish was the February angel project that I'm doing for Dee (twitter). You can see her blog where she posts each month's project and final results!

Here's my February angel:

I sure hope the rest of March is kinder to my sewing time than this week was - I've scheduled two craft shows in April!

Until next time,
