These three are for Jorge (If you don’t recall, he saved the blog from the evil hacker so he needs to get presents). A while ago, I hope Jorge remembers, I saw him either sticking in or pulling out his Kindle from a soccer sock and he saw me looking. He then went on to explain that he didn’t have a cover, and I offered to make him one. Guess what, there are three! They can fit the moods of the day or match your bag or tie. I don’t know, but I loved the idea, so I couldn’t stop at one.
Here are the socks that I started with:
These were so simple to make. The fabric is super stretchy so although they look thin, they fit the Kindle like a glove or a sock.I just put in an actually Kindle and then marked the length.
Then you turn the sock inside out and sew a straight line and a zigzag line. I cut the rest of the sock off. I played with making a cover from the sock end but it was really difficult to finish the cut edge so I stopped. I like the idea of the toe line being at the base of the Kindle but oh well.
I made a black, green, and yellow version for Jorge to use as he pleases. The blue sock actually ended up to be a little to thin (maybe it would work for an iPod or something like that). The socks were all brand new,just in case you wondered.
Happy reading, Jorge!
