Make A New "Kindle" Cover with "Subway Art"

I have made several "Kindle" Covers.. I love my Kindle it goes with me almost everywhere. But for the summer I decided to create a tote specifically for outings with a shoulder strap and a pocket for outing extras.
My attention focus of late has been on "subway art" type of embroidery, I thought why not a Kindle cover that would bear and reflect the same.

So.. a new pes file has been developed..  which creates the following "Subway Art"

The Embroidery is sized to fit the 5 x 7 hoop.  This size will fit the fabric cuts for almost all of the patterns on line for Kindle Covers. 

So I would suggest that you embroidery the fabric. . and then follow the cutting instructions for which ever pattern you choose to use.. 

Rather than build a new tutorial... I found a GREAT online pattern with a Tutorial from Sherry at Southern Girl Creations.. that WORKS.  I started here:


It's a complete tutorial on making a flap closing Kindle Cover..  Thank You Sherry for all your effort to put this tutorial onLine.


And then I added to it slightly.. By making my flap a bit different.. and adding a fabric wrapped cord which I attached with 2 circle rings..  The "Subway Art" front shows while its over your shoulder.. keeping your personal stuff in the pocket safe against your body..

The pocket in the back.. is perfect for carrying a pen, note pad and phone.
Or sometimes.. I take my "Kindle" with me when I need a drivers license, some money or charge card.. and the pocket is perfect for that...

So over my shoulder "Kindle Tote" and off I go for those summer outings..

Ready to make Your Own..  Here is the PES Embroidery File.
