I downloaded this awesome pattern from etsy seller BirdifulStitches and made a kindle case for my co-worker and an iPod case for myself. The pattern has a pocket for the reader and an extra pocket for cords or earphones. My sister has a Sony ereader, so I'm planning on making her one too.
I bought a "jelly-roll" of fabric from Walmart, and pieced it all together. The original pattern has a loop and button closure, but I decided to use a magnetic closure instead. I felt the kindle case needed something else (since I didn't put the button), so I found a tutorial and made a flower for the front (I made it into a pin so that it can be removed if she doesn't like it). I put the flower through the washer and dryer so that it would fray and be fluffier. I also added a long strap to the case, which is not in the pattern.
For the iPod case, I added the wrist strap. I'm very happy with the way they both turned out, and I hope my co-worker likes it, I'll find out tomorrow.
Thanks for looking!
