Align the front and back panel together. Place the wrong side down (the pouch will be flipped inside out).
Cut a piece of yarn approximately twice the length of your panels.
With a yarn needle, use whip stitch to seam up the sides of the pouch. Start at either corner, sew through front panel and back panel. Continue sewing along the side of the pouch, try to sew as close to the outer edge, as possible.
Whip stitch around the pouch leaving the top portion open for the Kindle/e-reader to slide in and out.
Insert strap, approximately 1 inch down from the top of the bag, on each side of the bag. Align the strap so it is sandwiched between the front and back panel.
Attached the strap to the front panel or to the back panel, using whip stitch. Go over 3-4 times to ensure the strap will not become detached.
Weave your ends from this seam.
