I finally finished making and sending all of my Christmas gifts out this year (some will likely arrive a little late at their destinations, but I am still proud I finished!). I received a digital e-reader from one of my employers as a Holiday gift this year, and as a reward for finishing all my other projects I decided to make myself a case for it. :)
I had some of this lovely graphic coral colored fabric leftover from another project and paired it with a mottled red wool felt lining. Add a little velcro, cut to size and sew around the edges and now I have a great little cover for my tablet! If I had a nicer one, I likely would have added some extra padding or gone all out with a zipper or snaps, but this was a quick 20 minute project and now my screen won't get scratched if I carry this around in my bag with me. Also, I love the color combo, it's so bright and fun (not at all like the Portland winter).
Have you finished your Holiday gifting? Get or make anything extra special for yourself this year? I'd love to hear how the Holidays are treating you :)
