Kobo Covers – Handmade

I’ve got a Kobo Glo for my birthday! I love to read, but I’ve never tried an e-reader.Don’t know why, maybe it was because I really love the physical books, maybe because I thought that reading from an electronic device would get me tired really fast… but… I was so wrong! 

This e-reader was one the best things that I’ve bought (yes, in my whole life). Thanks to this e-reader I’ve begun to read much more! In 2 weeks I read 3 books!

So, about the covers, I needed a cover for my Kobo Glo, but I didn’t want to pay 40€ for an “official” cover, so I made my own! Actually, I made two! 

Handmade Kobo Covers

This cover is similar to a hardcover book.

Reading Kafka – The Process – Such a great book!

This Kobo Cover is similar to a hardcover book too. This fabric is very soft and comfortable to hold.

You can close it very easily with the velcro. 

It’s perfect to carry in your purse.

The Kobo Glo, and the e-readers are now part of my world! I’ll continue to develop new and better covers for e-readers (yeah, I like to change it often).

Polka Dot Fabric – With acrylic layer!

Today I wanted to show you my new purchase! I have two cats and they like to play with the food and water, so my kitchen’s floor is always adorn with food!

I wanted to make a placemat for them but I didn’t want to use that plastic fabric, that vinyl, because it shines too much! I couldn’t use normal fabric too, because you can’t clean that everyday.

The other day I was doing some shopping at IKEA and I saw this polka dot fabric! It was perfect! It has an acrylic layer so it is cleanable with a wet towel!

It’s perfect! It doesn’t shine too much and I can clean their mess everyday! I can also machine wash if it gets really dirty. It was available in black and white and in red and white. I choose the black and white because it suits my kitchen better.

I’m going to use this tutorial to make a new placemat! I hope the kitties will like it!

I know, I know, the fabric is all wrinkly, but it’s very difficult to press!

My new Craft Paper Punches!

 

Craft paper punches

So, this Saturday I went to a store to buy some food for my lunch, but when I was passing through the corridors I saw something that caught my eye…something colorful…with hearts!

A beautiful set of craft paper punches were there smiling at me! Of course, I had to bring them home.

I was trying to buy some punchers for a long time, but they are hard to find here, so when I saw it, I was so happy!

With these gorgeous craft paper punches you can:

  • Print hearts (or bears!) in jeans or other clothes (I want to make these jeans)
  • Make beautiful cards!
  • Decorate your notebooks (oh I’ll make some hearts on mine!)
  • Embellish house stuff, like place mats and jars!

Craft paper punches

The possibilities are endless; you just need to be creative! For a person that can’t draw, even simple shapes, like me this is just perfect!

The craft paper punches are really sturdy and I’m really happy with this purchase!

My new fabric – Cats!

Today I want to show you a new fabric that I’ve bought!

It’s a beautiful fabric with some cute cats in it! I love cats and when I saw this fabric, I just had to buy it.
In the photo you can’t see clearly, but this is very light fabric and I will use it to make a ruffled scarf!

I’ve already thought on some projects to share with you and the light scarf is one of them. I’ll make a tutorial for this and share it with you. I don’t know when yet, but soon, soon!
This is a very easy project, so it’s perfect for a beginner that wants to wear something they made. Bags, aprons and other stuff it’s great, but I see so much satisfaction in a scarf!

Is this a gorgeous fabric or what?
