Teapot cozie and Kindle Cover

It really has been a hectic few weeks trying to get my patterns finished, so over the last few days I took some time to do some 'fun' sewing, (as opposed to work). My sister celebrated a big birthday last week and so I made some pressies for her.

Tracey is a huge Tea fan and had been given a gorgeous Teapot for christmas, so of course she needed a tea pot cozie. I looked and looked for patterns, but I just couldn't find anything at short notice that was both modern and funky and practical, so instead I modified my Teacup Carrier pattern to create this.
 Considering I was working from measurements and didn't have a teapot to test it out with I'm really happy with it.
 Tracey also got a Kindle recently and wanted me to make her a pouch to protect the screen when she puts it in her handbag.

I went searching for patterns and was largely influenced by this tutorial, but I used a timtex type interfacing and pellon instead of cardboard to make it stiff like a book. and I used hat elastic for the straps to hold it in. Mainly because I didn't have any 1/4" black elastic, but it actually works because it doesn't obscure the keys.

Back to pattern writing now.... Oh and there is sneak peak pictures from the pattern cover shoot for my next 2 patterns over on my facebook page, just click on the facebook link on the right sidebar.
