E-Reader cover finish!

Hoppy Froggies! Padsworth and I sure hope that many of you will be completing pillowcases and e-reader covers for the Remember Servicemen and Women in September project!

We're proud to be a part of the effort, and decided that the Snoopy pillowcase was just not enough . . . Padsworth was determined that we were going to complete an e-reader cover!
Luckily, Melissa at SewBittersweetDesigns had a bodacious tutorial that helped us along! 
Whatcha think?  Yes, yes, I know you all love does the cover look?? (Grin)

Melissa's tut had instructions for a velcro closure, and for the life of me, I couldn't find my velcro in my stash. Plus, I'm old school, and decided a button and buttonhole might be sturdier, so that's how we rolled.

Here is Padsworth showing you the zipper to hold the reader in safety:

And here is one last shot of the cover and our dapper froggie friend:

I don't have an e-reader, so I stuck a ruler in there to show you that it really is a zipper pocket! 

I'm proud to be participating in this effort for our servicemen and servicewomen, and I hope that you will hop to it, and make a pillowcase or e-reader cover to send over! Get all the details over at Melissa's, or at Kristy's blog, or from Sondra, at Contemporary Cloth.
