While I was researching which Kindle to get Mom, I became very interested in getting one and a few weeks ago, John surprised me with one! Of course, the main reason was that so I could 'help' Mom with hers! And if you are like me, with every new electronic device, you need at least one accessory to go with it! I thought I would like a case. Something small that would fit in my purse and of course it had to be fashionable! I decided on a design and went to the most un-fashionable place in the world but found this great fabric at Walmart! I spent a whopping $3 on the fabric and came home, got out the sewing machine and got to work! I already had the batting, thread and picked out two buttons from my button collection. In less than one hour, I whipped up two Kindle cases for Mom and me! The only difference are the buttons! I even got to use the new fangled, fancy button hole maker on my sewing machine (why didn't they have these when I was in college/grad school?).
Ta-Da!!! Yes, a whopping $3 later!!! I love mine! And I think Mom does too! When she opened it she said, "Oh, it's a Vera Bradley!" I said, "No, it's a Kennita Kind!"
Love you, Mom! Happy Birthday! And Happy Birthday, Aunt Nita--a gift card is in the mail to your favorite store!! Let me know when you get a Kindle, I know where you can get a case!
