NEW Tablet & eReader Cases for Kindles, iPads and More!

After a hectic two and a half months, I've finally managed to find time to handmake and list some fabulous, funky and superdoops new tablet and eReader cases.  There's something to suit just about everyone - cats, butterflies, stripes, spots, contemporary floral, and a mad retro paisley!  Some sleeves are ready to ship (for the smallest Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle Touch) but most are made to order, for all other Kindle models (including the Kindle Fire), the iPad Mini, Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab 7", and the Blackberry Playbook.  Made-to-order covers are currently ready to despatch in 3-5 working days from receipt of cleared payment, so no long waiting times as there were in November, December and early January.  And don't forget that all prices on the website include UK post & packing.  I hope you like them (more coming soon!), and if your particular tablet or eReader hasn't been mentioned, contact me via BaggieAggie with your requirements, and support British handmade. :)

No-one wants an ELEPHANT treading on their Kindle...

Quirky Handmade Fabric 'Elephants' eReader / Tablet Sleeve,Kindle,Kobo,iPad Mini,Nexus 7,Galaxy Tab,Blackberry Playbook,red,navy blue,natural,UK.
 ... or any other eReader or tablet, for that matter!  Well, you'd think so, wouldn't you, but you'd be wrong, because I recently received a request from a client for an elephant-themed case for a Blackberry Playbook.  The brief was that it had to be quirky, and not girly. After hunting down a few 'elephant' fabrics, this fabulous cotton canvas in red, navy blue and natural was chosen.

As I had plenty of fabric left over, I thought I'd offer an 'Elephants' sleeve on my website, as handmade to order for other eReaders and tablets, not just the Blackberry Playbook. I almost immediately received an order for a case to fit the Kindle 4 (the keyboardless, smallest model), which just goes to show that elephants and expensive gadgets do mix after all!

If you're an elephant fan too, this gadget case (and many others) can be made to order for the Kobo Touch, Nexus 7, iPad Mini, 7" Galaxy Tab, Blackberry Playbook, and various Kindles (simply select your eReader or tablet from the dropdown menu).  Give someone you love a quality Christmas gift that's just a little bit different. :)

* CHRISTMAS 2012 - Final order dates for made-to-order items:
UK - 5th December
EU - 1st December
US/Canada/Australia - 26th November

Looking for funky buttons for a craft project...?

Funky large unusual acrylic buttons, green, purple, pink, turquoise, bag making, sewing, knitting.
 I'm often on the lookout for unusual large buttons for my craft projects, and can rarely find anything that fits the bill - I strike lucky occasionally, but generally speaking it's the same old same old. But, as I'm sure you'll agree, these quality acrylic buttons have funkiness in spades!

If you love these as much as I do, you'll find more designs (funky, colourful, retro, bright - take your pick!) at ThimbleShack, my new ebay store.  If you sew, knit or make bags, and haven't yet found the perfect button or buttons, these could be just what you're looking for. :)

Berisford's 'Natural Charm' grosgrain Christmas ribbon at ThimbleShack, my new Ebay store!

Berisford Grosgrain Christmas Ribbon, Natural Charms - Reindeer, Hearts, Merry Christmas - red. green, natural
This is just some of the gorgeous grosgrain Christmas ribbon available from ThimbleShack, my brand new Ebay store.  So, if you've been wondering where I've been for the last few weeks, now you know, lol!

Perfect for crafting and gift wrapping, this 15mm wide grosgrain ribbon (from Berisford's 'Natural Charm' collection) is currently available for only £1.40 for a two-metre length while stocks last. 

Berisford, a UK company, sells quality ribbons of all types, and I'll be adding more to ThimbleShack in the coming days and weeks.

I''ll also be adding more craft supplies, mainly for knitting and sewing initially as these are my own particular passions, so do pop in from time to time to see what's new. :)
