So, I decided I wanted a cover for my Kindle. Mine is the Kindle Touch, the model before the Paperwhite (I love it, by the way - currently rereading Harry Potter!), and has a case, which is a plain black hard case. I like having a case for it to protect, but very quickly the black became... so boring. I needed something nicer, stat.
So I Googled, and found this tutorial. It's so easy, it took me less than an hour from finding the tutorial to having a completed case! It took me a few tries to get the perfect stitching distance, but I'm so happy with the end result. The fabric was left over from a project years and years ago, but I'm glad I kept it.
Having finished it, I felt like it needed a little something else. I don't have the right foot for my machine to be able to freeform writing on the case, so I wrote my name on it in silver Sharpie and used that as a guide while hand stitching over it with silver thread. I love the effect it gives, and I took my time to made sure that it was nice and neat.
That was the perfect getting-back-into-it project. Now, back to garment sewing! I'd love to know in the comments, how do you get back into it when you have a sewing slump?
