Kindle Fire Cover

My son in law won a "kindle fire" at work, and I made a cover for it.  Have you ever tried to choose "masculine" fabric at the quilt store?  lol.......It is possible!
I found the tutorial here, on Skip to my Lou's blog.

The directions were very simple to follow.  It called for white elastic to hold the kindle in place. I kept the elastic in the top left corner to show you what it looked like.  I didn't really like the look, so I purchased some black elastic instead.
Do you like the "masculine fabric"?  I really like the chevron!

I cut a piece of cardstock the dimensions of the kindle to make sure it will fit in the corner elastic holders.

I chose this pattern, because of the pockets.  Two full depth pockets on the front, and one on the side.

I used the chevron print for the tab and sewed on some navy velcro.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to find any brown.

I looked into my button jars and found a really nice vintage one to finish the look. 
I'm pleased with the results.  I hope he likes it!
