Welcome to another handmade Monday! I haven’t had a lot of time to be sewing this week, so yesterday I made the most of getting up early and set to at my sewing machine, armed with many cups of tea and a stack of fabric.
I have been asked by Maeri at the Make and Do Studio to teach a workshop as part of her new evening craft nights. I was beyond excited as this is really something I would love to develop, so I jumped at the chance! I decided on developing a workshop on making a kindle cover as it seems a lot of people have a kindle or e-reader of some sort! As the workshop is only an hour long, the sewing has to be fairly straight forward. I have stuck with a very simple envelope sleeve, with the option to add a magnetic clasp or button closure to personalise it. I made a few trying to get a size that would fit most sizes of kindle (why can’t they all be the same size?!) and stuck with my motto of reusing, therefore no need to buy any more fabric!
So here they all are! I am quite pleased with the results and I am meeting Maeri in the week to discuss the finer details of the workshop – so exciting! Keep your eyes peeled on here next month for a tutorial on how to make one. Also I realised that all these things add up to a few of my new years resolutions being ticked off – bonus!
