safe and cosy

This year has been crazy so far!  I'm really hoping that the rain and the flooding will stop sometime soon.  My thoughts don't stray far from those affected these days.  It's just all so heartbreaking.  Please donate if you haven't already.

I thought I might also try and  post something with a happier theme today...

So...I thought I might show you the quilted e-reader sleeve I made just before Christmas.  This was for the Kobo E-Reader that my lovely husband bought me for my birthday.  I couldn't find a pattern that I liked so I just made a little something up and am very happy with the results (with the exception of the zipper, which is not quite perfect but still pretty darn good considering my past experiences with zippers!).  I used some Hello Kitty fabric I bought in Japan last year (yes, I am 12 years old).  If you look closely you'll be able to see a special name included in the pattern on the fabric.  Can you see it?  Yep, it says Jodie!  That's me!  You can imagine my excitement when I found it in the amazing Odakaya in Shinjuku, Tokyo.  That place is amazing all on it's own and I wish I had more time there.  As it was we were meant to meet up with our friends so I literally ran up all the levels (that's 5 levels in 2 separate buildings!) to quickly check what was on each floor.  Anyway, I squealed with delight when I found this and I knew it would come in handy at some point.

I did a bit of embroidery around one of the Jodie pictures and added a strap for easy carrying.  Pretty cute huh?  I'm very happy with it and it has been doing a great job of keeping my e-reader safe and cosy.

Hope you're all safe and cosy too!

  1. Hi your e-reader case...very well sewn. As you're such a clever sewing girl..and you are yearning to help the flood affected I just thought I'd let you know that I'm making cushions to cheer them up when they get somewhere to if you want to help I'd love you to join in.
