Kindle Fire Sock

I had a lot of fun making this. I have a friend who bought a new Kindle Fire but didn't get a case for it. So, I thought I'd make one for him. I used Peruvian Highland Wool, 4.5-5 sts per inch. I didn't take a picture of it before I sewed the bottom shut and blocked it, but it really did look like a sock, thus the name. I decided to put a flap with buttons so he wouldn't pick it up upside down and risk having the Kindle slide out. I learned button hole making on this one and, of course, always enjoy making things with cables in it. This is my own design and I'm very happy with it. Enjoy.

Thanks Greg! That means a lot coming from you. Your bears are so sweet and so perfectly done. I hope that things are going well for you now. Drop me a line sometime and tell me about what you are up to. Any reaction from the Martha Stewart mention?

Beautiful art meets technology. Like it!

Thank you, Jacob. I also like the idea of handmade textiles in conjunction with sleek technology. It kind of softens the "edge" that technology had added to our society. I like the hat you are wearing in your profile. Great color choice!
