Dug out some of my more 'manly' blue fabrics and discovered a hole in one fabric, last used when I taught a fabric postcard class and took some of my fabrics for people to help themselves to (nothing quite like other peoples stashes to be able to dive into eh?!). Why on earth would someone do this? It's not even as if there was a motif they needed!
Anyway fabric choices made, I sewed some strips together, I didn't want to do anything too 'fancy' it had to be simple. I then offered him a choice of contrast and bindings - aha, he's now caught on to the concept of 'custom made' and chose a rather 'jazzy' stripe to add some pizzaz.
If I was making this for anyone else I would have used two poppers, one on each corner but I know The Whizz Kid and just one popper is what he will actually use to keep his Kindle safe.I made a Pellon stiffener and added three layers of cotton wadding to fit the screen exactly.
I also made a strap with a caribineer clip attached so it can be attached to his backpack/belt loop/laptop bag to save it getting lost.
The whizz kid was pleased with the finished article:-)
