I bought some gorgeous yarn-dyed Essex and Center City from Annie the other day, with another Sidekick Tote in mind. I'm not normally the matchy-matchy type, but having cut the bits for the bag I had enough left over for a Kindle case. And it's such gorgeous fabric I couldn't resist.
So yesterday, on my once-every-two-weeks designated sewing day (not that I don't sew at other times, but it's nice to not feel guilty for a change) I hammered out the design and got sewing. There may or may not have been a couple of hiccups along the way, and suffice it to say I was very glad I did a mock up in ugly fabric first, but I ended up with something I am really really happy with. There is a pocket for the cable, or for the Kindle itself if you want to give it a bit of extra protection when you aren't reading.
