Simple accomplishments

Chris gave me my Christmas present early.  He got me a Kindle Fire!  It's very exciting.  I like it a lot, especially since I can use one hand to hold it.  I decided to make a pouch for it while deciding which case to buy... and this is what I ended up with:

Amazon Kindle Fire Case 
Sorry for the bad photo, but this little pouch caused me so much trouble!  I'm still not entirely happy with it, but it's good enough.  This is iteration #3.  Most of the other troubles were from the zipper.  After I sewed the zipper in, the opening was too small to put the kindle in!

I am pretty happy with it though.. it's fleece inside and I really like how I made a pocket for the earphones.  The quilting (to the batting) took a long time but I think it was worth it.  It now can sit at the bottom of my purse without worrying about it getting dirty.

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!
