Picture of Crocheted Flower Case for Kindle eReaders

I got my mom a Kindle as an early Christmas gift and decided to make a case to go with it.  My mom has a thing for 'butter yellow', but a plain yellow case was too boring so I added some flowers for a bit of color.  It has a cute spring-y look about it in the end. 

The case is designed to be use with the basic Kindle but could be used with any eReader that's about the same size (6.5" x 4.5" x 0.34)

You will need:
  • G Hook
  • 2 small buttons
  • 1 larger button for closure
  • Yarn needle
  • Sewing thread and needle
  • Pencil
  • Medium weight yarn in yellow, green, blue, purple and pink (I used Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn in vanilla bouquet, sage green, light blue, hot purple and hot pink)

This is great work, It looks really nice. I really like the way the flower is the strap to close the case.
I love this!
Very cute! At first I thought you did this for the stems. You were able to sew them on so well that they look like they perfectly belong where they are :)
