Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Years everyone!!!

These past couple of weeks have been so busy, yet exciting for me.  Birthday, Christmas and now New Years!  

I must have been a good girl this year because Santa gave me enough money and gift cards to get my Kindle!!!  I am not a huge reader, but the Kindle is so amazing, that I actually enjoy reading!!!  I even downloaded my very first book.  I chose Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain.  As a foodie, I love his perspective of food, culinary secrets and his bad boy behaviors!  I am about 1/2 way through the book, but highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good read. 

Rather than purchase an expensive Kindle cover, I decided to whip out the old sewing machine and see what I could scrape together.  I found a cool pattern online and decided to give it a whirl.  

If you decide to use the pattern listed in the link, please note that I had to cut an extra couple inches off the width.  The Kindle was sliding back and forth in the case and didn't seem secure enough.  Also, my button function on the sewing machine was messing up, so I decided to use velcro instead.  

And as you can see, I made the interior lining the quilted portion and the solid fabric as my exterior.  I plan on making another cover and will have the quilted side as my exterior.  

Happy New Years to everyone!
