A long, long time ago, Mother's Day to be exact,
I received a toy that I didn't expect to use very often.
I wanted one for travel, but doubted I'd
have much use for it other than that.
The toy was a Kindle Fire.
I carried it in its original box while I figured out what type of protective cover I wanted for it.
My family made fun of me for toting it all over the place in its box,
but I am a
Dropper of Expensive Electronic Devices
and knew better!
I finally decided to make the cover myself since I wanted a nice loud print
that would be easy to find in a travel bag or in the middle of my cluttered desk.
Please excuse the pen marks and coffee stains.
I use this just about every day, and it shows!
Here it is opened. Yes, more coffee stains.
Yes, two different fabrics.
One of the features that I thought I'd use a lot was the stand.
For some reason I only use it like this on a table when I'm
sewing and reading an E-pattern.
Well, there was that time I used it at the MUSC cafeteria
while eating by myself, but really,
it's not something I use as often as I expected.
This is how I use it.
I haven't taken my Kindle Fire out of its case
since I can charge it or use headphones without removing it.
And that's a good thing because I AM a
Dropper of Expensive Electronic Devices!
