idea pouch for Kindle

Lately I've been all about cleaning, and organizing, and getting rid of stuff I don't need while taking better care of the things I like. So, after being all happy about a little pouch I made for my camera, I decided my Kindle (which I recently "inherited" from my daughter :)) needed a new home as well.
 

I wanted something simple, pretty, as well as functional and I think this smaller version of Idea pouch fits the bill perfectly. I used the original pattern designed by Michelle patterns and printed all the pieces at 75% since the original size was too large for my Kindle.


I'm kind of obsessed with Art Gallery's Maker fabric collection and how it pairs so beautifully with Essex linen. Such a perfect match, don't you think?


I like how this Idea pouch has an extra pocket for my earbuds as well as a few pens and a notebook. Such a clever design, ♥♥♥.


I so love the addition of this simple little tab - tutorial is also by Michelle, you can find it here. I think it adds just the right amount of finesse to the finished pouch.


This is my second Idea pouch, you can find more info on the first one here. As you can see, my first Idea pouch was the original size. I keep my notebook and pens in it and it's already served me so well. I hope to get as much, or even more, use out of my new smaller Idea pouch. Who knows, I might even get over my dislike of ebooks, but for now it's all about having my Breaking Bad episodes with me on the go :).

Have a lovely day friends. Svetlana

  1. This is a great pouch. I've been carrying a small purse made from a Lazy Girl pattern that is very similar to this. I like this version of the one piece flap. Very cute.

  2. I have loved the use of your bold prints on this and other recent projects (tessa bag, divided basket). You have a wonderful eye for combining prints and colors. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I've made two of the idea pouches and love them. I have an iPad so I kept mine original size. I love the fabric you used for your idea pouch. It's good to know a print reduction of 75% will work for Kindle in case I ever make one for a gift.

  8. Love your little pouch!
    I got to take a class with Michelle recently and made the smaller version ~ turned out so cute. It's modified a bit from the first one as a sewing case ~ and big enough for a small notebook. Michelle makes the best patterns!
