So I got a Kindle from my company as a 5 year work anniversary present (and then my job was eliminated. Damn.) and I needed a sleeve to protect my Kindle for flights and long car trips home to visit family. Ages ago I'd made an under the sea card holder for my sister (
) and thought, heck, I loved making that, I'll make one on a grander scale for my Kindle sleeve!
Man, this black felt looks terrible in pictures, but I promise you, it looks fine in real life.
So we have some split stitch for the coral, fly and feather for the seaweed fronds, bullion knots for the sea anemones, french knots for the brain coral, detached chain for the yellow sea cucumbers and organically placed straight stitches for the teal and maroon...uh, coral/plant things. No idea what to call those. ^_^
On the back I made a little pocket for my clip-on light and then due to poor planning realized that the button for the felt strap that closes the top would have to be sewn to the pocket flap. Curses.
Anyways, I initially planned on adding a jellyfish to the open space on the right but as I was finishing this the night before we had to get up at 4am to catch a flight, I decided to leave that for later. ^_^
Thanks for looking and any tips on photographing black felt so it doesn't like all dusty and blown out would be appreciated.
