Our quilt guild, Illini Country Stitchers, holds a quilt show every other year. This is the year for a show, and yours truly is the show chairperson. I have been immersing myself for the past 18 months with quilt show adminstration, and trying to get everything in order. It is kind of like planning a wedding; a lot of things need to happen a long time before the event. Then there is a lull, then things start getting exciting. We are starting to get to the start of the busy time. One of the things that needs to be done is to get handmade items made for our boutique.
One of the things that I am thinking would sell well would be e-reader covers. I have developed a pattern for a sleeve, which is easy to make. But I wanted to make one that looked more like a book cover. I found a pattern on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/57323630/the-original-padded-nook-nook-colornew. The pattern was easy to understand, and easy to make up. I have asked for permission to sell at our boutique, and I hope they respond positively!
Hubby likes the grey one best. It has a maroon interior, which is pictured below. I still need to get a button for each of them. I'm thinking of using Velcro if I make more.
I like the one on the left. The batik looks like beach landscape!
