My boys determined I was hogging the tablet (an Android device we’ve had since Christmas), reading book after book checked out from the library, so they got me a Kindle! It’s not the fancypants Kindle Fire but it’s just what I needed.

I’m a big fan of just throwing things into my bag when I’m getting ready to go. I usually toss in my camera, wrapped in a Zing neoprene case, my wallet, a snack, and a notepad. The only thing that stays in my bag indefinitely are a plethora of pens, crayons, markers, and gum. THAT SAID, my Kindle needed some padding if it were going to be tossed in with all the rest.

I had this piece of leather hanging around and so I decided to incorporate it into my little cozy. I kind of love the result. I am using a 3.5mm (E!) hook and cotton for the crochet part. Let me just say it–ooooow! Tight stitches! I’m not sure how I’m going to finish it. I may add a zipper at the top but my crochet subconscious is thinking buckles. Like mini-satchel style. I guess we’ll see in a few days!

Have you ever crocheted (or knit!) on leather?
