A new year, a new Kindle sleeve

My mother-in-law got a new Kindle for Christmas, so of course, I offered to make her a sleeve for it. She picked out the fabrics (Dots in Cream and Crosshatch in Lime from Timeless Treasures' Fruit Punch collection, both purchased from Hawthorne Threads several months ago) from my stash while she was visiting us before the holidays, but because of the craziness of the past weeks, I wasn't able to finish the sleeve until last night (finally!).
I used my Kindle sleeve tutorial, adjusting the size to accommodate the new, smaller Kindle 4. (I also added a note to the tutorial to explain how to adjust the sizing to fit your device. The original tutorial was written for a Kindle 3.) I'm dropping it in the mail today, so she can finally start enjoying it soon.
And it seems the tutorial has been pretty popular recently. Check out these other great Kindle sleeves made using the tutorial:

Tanya from The Sampler Girl recently had a post on her blog about the sleeve she made using the tutorial. Isn't the Valentine's fabric cute?
And Joan from the Stitching Squad made this sleeve for her daughter's Kindle. I love how she added a pocket to the front — so clever!
Have you used the tutorial? I'd love to see and hear how it worked out.

  1. Suuuper cute, your work always looks so nice. So I just bought some of David Walker's "Let's Get Together" in Navy thanks to your recommendation for Hawthorne Threads. Thanks!
