Last week I shared this [unfinished] kindle cover that I made for my Dad for Father's Day:
I didn't know how to finish the two ends of the binding (note the clips in the photo), but I learned that it was as simple as just leaving a little extra fabric at the each end and folding it under! After ripping out the entire binding and re-doing it, I somehow just lost all enthusiasm for the thing. Does that ever happen to you? Maybe its a beginner thing. Or being a perfectionist? Who knows.
So I chalked it up to a practice piece, and proceeded to make a completely different cover using this tutorial by Kari on the handmade mommy blogspot. My father has a first generation Kindle from Amazon that came with its own hard cover, so I opted for a book-jacket style cover this time.

So I am happy to report that I am satisfied with my do-over!
And now, on to the next project...
