Kindle case fail

I had a craft project list the length of the Great Wall of China  to do this weekend, so instead I tried to make a case for my Kindle!

I measured out¬† a pattern in case it came out well. I try to make patterns for everything, that way I don’t have to worry about guessing on measurements later on (I’m very forgetful). I also find it helpful to have a pattern if I’m showing someone else how to make something, since I usually write some directions on it.


I cut out my fabric and ironed on some interfacing to make it stronger, thinking this might help protect the Kindle if it gets dropped or hit with something. But honestly this wouldn’t help me because it’s not a metal, crush-proof, water-proof case. If it’s electronic, I will kill it.


Some pinning happened:


And some sewing happened:


Then it was done! Dead-whale themed, of course.


Oh, then I tried to fit my Kindle in and found out I made the case too small!

Looks like it will just fit, huh? Well it just DOESN’T fit. I was upset with myself. But then my brother gave me a great idea!


Wait for it…


I can use it as a phone case.
