Craft Fail....

For my birthday I got a the wonderful gift of a Nook Color E-Reader.  I knew that I wanted to be able to carry this sucker around with me all the time and it not get damaged.  I have seen lots of e-reader cases all over the web.  Well my sewing skills are not wonderful and I didn't want to shell out the money for a pattern so I just made a super simple case and made it up as I went along.  I measured my reader, cut out the fabric, and used some batting for the padding.  I even went so far as to try and do a little quilting to make it a little fancier.  Ummm yeah CRAFT FAIL......

I am really not sure how the fabric shrunk up so much, upon being sewed toghether.  I guess that's what I get for not using "real" measurements.  Stinks too cause I fussy cut so that the skull shapes would be front and center.  *sigh* No clue what to do with this tiny thing but it ain't going to be a Nook holder....

Back to the drawing board.  The second time around I cut the fabric a bit larger, didn't quilt, actually sewed it up a little differently.  I mainly made these changes out of laziness..

But it worked!  It's nothing super fancy and I am kinda sad that the skulls aren't the way I wanted them but it serves it's purpose. 

I still want one of the fancy cases and may splurge and buy myself the pattern one of these days.

Oops! Maybe the first try could be used to hold a cell phone or camera? It looks really cute. The fabric is great. Congrats on working it out the second time!

Love the fabrics.

LimeRiot is absolutely correct. My cell phone looks like it would fit perfectly into the pocket.

The idea is SEW perfect!
