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:
2 small buttons
1 larger button for closure
Sewing thread and needle
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)
Step 1: Crochet the Sleeve and Decorations.
The sleeve and closure strap are made from the base color (in this case yellow).
