A couple of weeks ago my other half bought himself a new laptop, and to sweeten the blow of yet another computer in the house, he bought me a Kindle. Once I got over the surprise, I started thinking about a case for my new toy. I looked about online for inspiration, and decided to use a crushed pale peach velvet scarf that was part of a winter bridesmaid outfit.
I cut off enough of the end of the scarf to fold over to make a flapped pouch, and a piece of wadding the same size. I inserted the wadding inside and hemmed the open end. I then used pins to mark out inch wide lines and machined them before repeating in the other direction to make a quilted grid.
Once I’d formed the pouch and sewn up the sides I sectioned off a small pocket to house my green book light. When I have trouble sleeping I use it to read in bed without disturbing my partner, and as the Kindle isn’t back lit I still need it to read at night.
