A Kindle bag!

I wish I had a Kindle, I love to read and I love all of the cool features they have. If I had one I would definitely want it to have a comfy home like this. I was asked to do a special order for a Kindle bag. It had to be about the size of a Kindle and have a nice strap on it to hang on your shoulder, so if you were on the go and wanted to put your story down you could just slip it in the bag and then pick up reading when you were finished doing whatever it was that you were doing.



This is what I came up with, I nice felted comfy bag for your Kindle!!






It had to look like it belonged to a girl, and because flowers are so cute on bags, it had to have that as the embellishment.






The leaves were sewn on and the bottom petals were sewn with the machine and then I did the rest with a needle and thread.







I made a pocket to go on the back so you could stash, ear phones or whatever needed to be stashed.








The front flap has a magnetic snap, it looks like a button but the snap is underneath.


Here is my version of a Kindle bag! Happy reading to all you Kindle owners out there. I think this is making me want to have one. Maybe if I make another bag the Kindle will come :)

I LOVE my Kindle and this is a beautiful way to store it.

BTW - They have Kindles for $139 right now... they don't have the free 3G wireless, but really, it is necessary - you can plug it into your computer to get your books. ;)

Thanks for linking with Sugar & Spice.

I have a couple of books with felted projects but never feel like I can really make anything because the old sweaters I have are mostly gray or black. It's nice to see an example of how those colors can still turn into something very special AND girly!

Wow, this is SO pretty!!! I have a Barnes & Noble Nook (LOVE IT) rather than a Kindle, but I think they are close to the same size. What a great idea! And the colors look so pretty and make me think of the cooler weather coming up soon!! (I am a cold-weather fan!) :D
