Kindle Fire Cover by my Tween!

I recently helped my 12-year-old daughter with an e-reader cover she wanted to make for her friend's birthday.  She searched online and found this one  by Pink Poodle Bows etsy shop.


The instructions were clear  and include dimensions for several different e-readers.

Her friend is partial to zebra prints and the color purple.  My daughter was able to find some fabric she thought would work well.  After we cut the fabric, we embroidered a monogram on the corner of the outside cover fabric.
Inside panel with pocket done.

 She thought the finished cover was too floppy, so she cut and fitted some plastic mesh canvas for additional support.




Adding the button closure.


All done!
She did a great job and her friend loved it, and couldn't believe it was hand made.

Happy Stitching!!
