The Case of the Kindle

After focusing on bee blocks the last several days, I changed gears completely this afternoon and made something that hadn't even made my list yet, but had been on my mind. And that would be a cover for my Kindle.
I really liked the look of the one made by Ellison Lane Quilts, so, I uh, downloaded the tutorial to my Kindle and worked from there - a first for me!

I had in mind a little raw-edge applique and referred to this post at Sew, Mama, Sew to get me started. I really like the organic look of this simple stitching.
The fabric all came from my stash. Unfortunately I don't know what the main {black} fabric is, as the fq didn't have a selvage. {Do you know?}
The lining, though it doesn't show much, is my favorite tiny circle print from Juggling Summer by Zen Chic in teal and coordinates with the Ruby Star Shining typewriter perfectly. The closure tab is a little scrap of charcoal Sketch.
The tutorial was easy to follow and helped me achieve just what I had in mind.

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday.
