She's sketchy

It seems like ages ago I found this idea for an ebook cover. And today I finally made it!
\Well, the idea was actually for a lap top cozy....

It's made from 100% wool felt from achildsdream.com (love their Holland wool felt). I laid the reader on the felt and added 1/4" all the way around (11.5"x7.75" for the outside and 5"x7.75" for the two inner pieces). I cut a rectangle on the front, added light grey felt behind it and then machine stitched designs all over it. I then embroidered "jen_a_sketch". I added the buttons last.

I'm pretty darn happy with it! I found this version on etsy. Cute idea!!

Emily playing with it...

Adrienne: I'm having major trouble with the bibs you commissioned. It's because it's that really thick vinyl..I'll explain/show you next time I see you. So I had to take a break and sew something fun:)

Emily today. So tired of me.


What? You NEVER sit around with a hamburger on your head??
We do all the time.
It's how we roll here:)

I really like the etch-a-sketch ebook cover, it's a really neat idea. The pictures are really cute too- there's no denying they're sisters, that's for sure. :)It's so funny how Emily sometimes seems like she's older than she really is. (Coming from the picture w/ her head in her hands where you say she's tired of you. hehehe) Have a good weekend!

LOVE the ebook cover! The picture of the two girls is soooooooo cute! Is is just me, or do they get cuter every day?

Adie said...

thanks everyone! Such nice comments, makes a girl blush:)I love my reader cover so much that I literally can't stop looking at it. I'm looking at it while typing this...
In the picture of Emily playing with the reader, I keep thinking it's her real one! But it's not! It's the one I made! I'm just that good! he he he, I'm making myself laugh. Seriously, I do think it's her real one everytime I look at that picture.

Didi: I'm so happy you're going to make one too! I can't wait to see yours all embellished and pimped out:)

May (and everyone else): They do keep getting cuter and cuter and cuter and cuter. Just when you think it's not possible...:)
