Cover your Kindle

I have just released my new sewing pattern for a Kindle cover. Its quite adaptable and comes with size options for a whole host of e-reader and mini tablet size versions.

It has an ear bud pocket and an ingenious inlet for headphone jack or charging cord at the bottom.

It also makes a really cute bag – can you believe I have Β been using it when I walk the dog (not with a cable sticking out of the bottom, but poop bags) – everyone keeps stopping me and asking where I got it from. Obviously this has given me the idea to adapt a version of this to a dog walkers bag sewing pattern later, but we digress!

Its an easy pattern so it’s great for beginners, and comes with full instructions to make either aΒ wrist strap, cross-body or neck strap.

It is fully lined, with a little wadding to save your device from knocks

A seperate pocket at the front keeps your headphones or charging lead handy.
Your device can be charged whilst still in its case thanks to a handy cord inlet at the bottom

Great stash-buster!

Stitchable Storage

So…I’m thinking about storage solutions for my new studio (currently being built – jumps up and down with excitement), I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of stitchable storage patterns. I am going to be making a few of these myself – everything matchy-matchy to start with of course.

Convertible Mini-Messenger

I am happy to announce the launch of my PDF Sewing pattern for The convertible Mini Messenger Bag (it also converts to a wristlet).

I designed this bag especially for my own needs, something I couldn’t find – I wanted something that wasn’t too big, but where I could easily organise and find everything on a day or night out. Tiny clutch bags and phone pouches just don’t hold all your essentials, I wanted something just that wee bit larger but without bulk. A cross body bag for the day that converts into a wristlet or clutch for the evening.

So I present my Mini Messenger bag pattern – the perfect option. It is perfect if you want a hands free bag or wristlet to carry your wallet, phone, keys, lipstick etc, though it is surprisingly accommodating for its size.

This pouch has a back zipper pocket and a front phone pocket, inside credit card slots and a glasses/gadget pocket, along with a roomy main zippered compartment.

Make it with an adjustable cross body strap, or a wrist strap, or both!

Wear it across the body in the day and change to the wrist strap for a night out
The beautifully padded exterior with a top zip closure keeps everything safe and in its place.
