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)

Step 1: Crochet the sleeve and decorations.

The sleeve and closure strap are made from the base color (in this case yellow).

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 <a href="http://www.favecrafts.com/Kitchen-Crochet/Flower-Dish-Cloth-Crochet-Pattern">this</a> for the stems. You were able to sew them on so well that they look like they perfectly belong where they are :)
