At Christmas-time of 2011 I knew that my older nieces would be getting Kindle Fires for Christmas and wanted to get them unique, fun covers for them, along with one for my own Kindle reader.  I looked through Etsy and was surprised how much these covers were selling for and wound up finding one seller that offered a sewing pattern for multiple E-reader sizes.  I had not sewn since 8th grade, nor did I own a sewing machine!  My mom, however, sews pretty often, and the instructions seemed pretty straightforward so I figured with her help it was worth a shot to try.

These are the girl’s Fire covers:

They were WAY easier than I expected, and at that point I knew that this was something I could do to have great, one-of-a-kind gifts for friends and family, as well as to fundraise for Team In Training events.  I discovered a world of sewing blogs with all sorts of great ideas, and in March when I bought my iPad (and my very own sewing machine!) I bought a pattern to make a cover for that:

 

 

 

 

And then before heading to Colorado in May and Disney in June, I made up a bunch of these great little luggage handle covers, which made all of our luggage super-easy to find at the baggage claim

And then I had some gifts to make for birthdays and a graduation so I made a couple clutches with key fob wristlets
