Look! I did something crafty!

When is the last time I knitted? Forever ago, sadly. But I recently acquired a Kindle and decided to put my minimal sewing skills to use making a cover for it. The pattern is here. I owned the fabric and other supplies already, so my cost was zilch. The results?

This is one side of the cover when it's closed. It's less than an inch thick even with the Kindle inside.

Here's the other side. Pink is normally not my thing, but I really love this fabric.

And here it is open. You can fold it flat or prop it like an easel. Spike and Angel approve, I think, as does John Steinbeck.

Great job on your cover! We think the fabric is pretty cool as well!

That's all kinds of awesome! I may have to make one for my Kindle too.

Are you on Goodreads? I've been trolling for new reads. Recently addicted to food lit (Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichel, etc...)

Thank you!

I haven't been on Goodreads, Lauren, because I feed my own book addiction enough as it is! I've read both Reichel and Bourdain, though, and really enjoyed them both.

If you want another good read for your Kindle, you could always try this:
