Back in January I saw THIS POST on the blog of the very talented Bagladee. Emma was posting about some pressies she had made for Christmas - iPhone covers in leather. Now I don't own an iPhone - but I had just received a Kindle (love love love my Kindle, a whole post on it's own). I had been looking for a cover for it, but most from Amazon are of the folding variety and for me they defeat the object of the kindle being such a delight to hold when reading! Most of my reading happens either at home (don't really need a cover) or when I am away - so I wanted something to protect the screen when I slip it into my handbag (all manner of things can happen in ones handbag!)
So I swiftly contact Emma to see if she could "adapt" the iPhone cover to become a Kindle Cover. I sent the dimensions etc and we had a few discussions about what I wanted on the front - we settled on a little row of beach huts - entirely Emma's idea and just PERFECT for me!
Kindle Cover #1 was received with great anticipation that swiftly turned to frustration as the Kindle wouldn't fit - it was just a little too tight :( Try as I might I just could not get the Kindle to go in! Very difficult to make a cover for a gadget you don't actually own! Emma VERY kindly said to send it back and some additional measuring was done and Kindle Cover #2 was under way! She also very kindly said she would make the first one into a little zip purse - YAY!
Well....I recieved Kindle Cover #2 today and IT IS PERFECT.
|and here it is with its little zip purse (this just happens to fit my camera in perfectly)|
It has already been on its first outing. Today has been glorious sunshine so we decided to go for a picnic on the beach (perfect Kindle outing). Marleyman had already made some Eccles Cakes this morning so they were packed along with some fresh coffee and off we went!

Honestly, I didn't think I would LOVE living here quite as much as I do!
