I love to read and while I much prefer 'real' books, I do like to load up my kindle for holidays and travelling. While browsing Pinterest I saw several pictures of patchwork covers and thought I would have a go at making one.
I had a mini charm pack of Kate Spain fabrics that I picked up on sale, they are the perfect size to cover 1" hexagon papers. I carried my tin of hexagons and pieces around with me while visiting friends, and just kept joining hexagons until I had a piece about the size of A4 paper
I enjoyed piecing this and finished it several weeks ago, realising that we leave for France in a couple of days, I thought I better get on with actually making it into something!
I found a scrap of batting in my stash and a cute piece of fabric for the lining
I machine stitched in the ditch down the length of the piece and then trimmed it down to 8" x 13"
added binding all round and folded up the bottom to make a pocket; I stitched on a couple of pieces of velcro to keep it closed
all ready to go en vacances :)
