“Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?”

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.” 
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

I thought making a cover for my kindle would be near-impossible but it turns out that no, it was not only do-able but I also reckon ‘teachable’ so there will be the much-promised tutorial on my blog over the weekend. (It might even be in video format if I’m feeling brave!)

Using Alice in Wonderland-inspired material along with very more-ish, pic’n'mix buttons from The Makery in Bath, I have transformed my (temporarily) very modern reading experience back into a joyous book-shaped one.  If you want to make one like mine, I recommend finding the following in the next few days, ready to start making when the instructions appear:

- Some pretty material

- Buttons

- 3 hair elastics

- ribbon (from the inside of clothes for hanging on coat-hangers will do!)

- an old ringbinder

- a craft knife

- sewing machine

Good luck sourcing, and check back later!
