My husband was dragging his Kindle everywhere he went, threw in the back seat of the car, on the floor and no telling where else. I was afraid the skin surface would get scratched, so my inspiration for this design. The Kindle slips right in the bag and he can carry it with the handles. This cover/bag has a masculine appeal, but women and children might like it made in brighter, school colors. The pattern is easy to follow. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY SINGLE AND HALF DOUBLE CROCHET STITCHES GAUGE Not important to this design. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 7 1/2" X 11"
