Mr Kit has a habit of wanting gadgets and then after a few months getting bored of them, at which point I acquire them. Case in point is the kindle, which he doesn't use any more so I've been using. I didn't like the case he had though, so I made my own.
I embroidered the pictures using a transfer from a book I was given for my birthday a few years ago and then discovered it wasn't quite big enough to be the front of the cover, argh! So I added it to a tartan cotton cover that was big enough and added a batting lining before a lining in the same tartan.
The top is bound in cotton bias binding and it just snugly fits the kindle so I haven't worried about a closure at the top.
