Rise & Shine Android Tablet Cover
So, a quick little Easter Bank Holiday project - a portable case for my 8" Android tablet using Ruby Star Rising on the back & Ruby Star Shining on the front and inside - hence the title!
Since I put the Kindle app on my Android I've really needed some kind of case that lets me just pull it out of my bag - flip it open and start reading (for train journeys and such like).
My dream case also needed to be comfortable to hold, for drowsy reading in bed, so the front cover is padded with fusible fleece ... which is good for the screen too.
I created a half handle with webbing, sewing the other half proud to the spine. I just need to be able to grab it. but I didn't need a carrying handle as such ...
The inside has a smaller typewriter scrap, along with some newspring linen that I bought a couple of years ago and have never found a use for! Yay! I particularly like the newsprint on the tablet holding section ...
Not the most technically perfect thing I've ever made, but I know it will be dearly loved and much used ... By ME!
