Sorry for the blog silence, everybody. I’ve been laboring away on christmas presents, because in less than a month, I will finally be back in my home state of Texas! Words can’t express how excited I am to see my family and eat all the delicious food I’ve been missing! In my haste to finish everything, I forgot about a couple of posts I promised forever ago. At long last, I’ll reveal the birthday presents I made my siblings and delivered months late. I give you… leather kindle cases:
It’s always much harder to think of homemade gift ideas for boys. Unlike girls, you can’t just make them something pretty– it’s got to be functional, too. So, armed with the knowledge that both brothers were kindle owners, I set about designing and making a couple of cases that would look handsome and manly as they protected kindles. Both are crafted from a single piece of leather, are hand-stitched, and are secured with a buckle from a thrifted belt. Each is lined with different color of seersucker, so they are easily distinguishable.
