nap time project

I received a Kobo e-reader for my birthday and have been using a not so pretty case to protect it... until today! I found this tutorial via Pinterest from The Cottage Home and I thought the fabric I had picked up would be well used to make this cute little case.

I started it last night at 10pm. Not a good move. 

I decided to put it aside until I had more time and I wasn't struggling to keep my eyes open. So when the little went down for her nap this afternoon I ripped out last night's stitches and started over.
My sewing machine was having a fight with the fleece I used for a lining and my third trimester hormones were getting the best of me as I wrenched the button tab off the machine a few times so I switched it out for some elastic as a closure.
I also added the ruffle-y strip because I had two fabrics I wanted to use. The lining is a cheap-o dollar store baby blanket that we have never used so I didn't feel too bad hacking it to bits.

My Kobo just fits in nicely and seems to be happy in his new home. 
Thanks for the tutorial Cottage Mama!
