Hi Everyone,

Am I dragging this out long enough? I mean both the giveaway and the Kindle Cover. If I only have about 10 minutes a day to write this is what you get LOL So here we go...

The fifth prize that will go into one of the three giveaway packages is Quiltin' Happy a quilt book by Lizzie B Cre8ive. It has some super fun quilts in it for you to make. Those girls always come up with fun stuff...

Supply List

Cutting: Please excuse the colors going back and forth between blue and purple. I was trying to use the best pictures.

1- 2 1/2" X 11 1/2" from one of the Dark Exterior Fabrics (this will be the top strip on the outside)
1- 3" X 11 1/2" from second Dark Exterior Fabric (this will be the bottom strip on the outside)
1- 2 1/4" X 4" from Light Exterior Fabric (this will be part of the center strip on the outside)
1- 3 1/2 X 4" from Light Exterior Fabric
1- 7" X 4" from Light Exterior Fabric
1- 1 1/4" X 4" from Light Exterior Fabric (this is the binding for the vinyl title window)

If you decide not to put the title window in, you can just cut a 4" X 11 1/2" piece of the light center fabric and skip the 4 pieces above.

1- 2" X 5 1/2" Of your choice (button loop)

1- 2 1/2" X 3 1/2"  Clear Vinyl (optional for title window)

Here are the pieces to make it more understandable.

2- 6" X 8 1/2" Interior Fabric (interior panels)
4- 2 1/2" X 6 1/2" Interior Fabric (elastic covers) this is optional if you decide to use ribbon or leave your                             elastic bare
4- 4 1/2"  Elastic or Ribbon

Optional Pockets--I didn't think of this when I wrote the supply list but you only need an extra piece of light to medium weight interfacing 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" you should have plenty left of your interior fat quarter to cut the pockets. I will go back and fix the supply list.

1- 6" X 15" Interior Fabric
1- 6" X 7" Interior Fabric 

2- 4 3/4" X 7 1/4" Peltex or Timtex (this is heavy structural stuff very stiff)

Optional for pockets:

1- 5 1/2 X 7" Pellon Fusible Fleece
1- 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" Light to medium weight fusible interfacing

That is it for now!

See you tomorrow!

  3. Dang! Am I the only blogger to have a Nook and not a Kindle? I see so many tutorials for a Kindle cover and just a handful for Nook covers.

  9. Take your time you will probably have all the directions posted by the time I can start the cover. Your prizes are wonderful!
