Feeling crafty…


Decided it was finally time to make the felted case for my Kindle that I’ve been thinking about making for about a year now… tonight is as good as any I guess. Started with a swatch of felted alpaca fiber from one of my mom’s alpacas. This material is great- my brain is whirling with all the possibilities of fantastic things that could be created with this.I cut a rectangle from the felt big enough to cover the entire Kindle. Then needle felted an owl onto the cover using dyed alpaca rovings.

Next I just did a whip stitch up around the sides and added a little deer antler button. Voila!

A cute and fuzzy cover for my Kindle!

    Good morning to you! Sunday morning coffee and blogging -a common thread. I popped over to see you after I saw your comment. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I just had to comment on your kindle cover. Owls are one of my favorite things and I’m so jealous of your darling alpaca cover complete with owl and antler button! I need one of those for my iPad. Nice to meet you. Have a restful Sunday.

      Nice to meet you as well! 🙂 As I finished up this Kindle cover, my husband arrived home with his new work iPad- which got me thinking right away that he CERTAINLY needs one of these covers for his iPad as well. I’ll post a picture of whatever I come up with for that. Thank you for stopping over!
