Kindle sleeves warm up the weekend

It was another great weekend for sewing (or should I say, Sunday was a great day for sewing. Saturday was Mardi Gras!). In addition to finishing the Anda dress, I also completed two new Kindle sleeves (tutorial coming soon!).
For the first one, I used Momo's It's a Hoot Eggs in Chocolate (apparently impossible to find online now; I came across it in my local quilt shop) for the outside.
Then, I lined it with Laura Gunn's Tile Mosaic in Green from the Lantern Bloom collection.
Snug as a bug in a rug.
The second one has Linden in Reservoir from Kate Spain's amazing Central Park collection on the exterior.
The inside is lined with a print I picked up from Joann's. (You've also seen it here and here.)
I was really happy with the way they turned out, and I hope their recipients (secret!) love them, too.
