About beesocks

Sales 9,025
On Etsy since 2005

someone has to keep the bee's knees covered

Beesocks began on Etsy lo these many years ago (2005) making one of a kind feltpeople (flat felt dolls and custom portraits made from felt) They were pretty darn neat if I do say so myself! Felt is the most amazing material in the world, you can make anything out of felt if you put your mind to it. (I used polyester felt, a noble and versatile material that I am conveniently not allergic to)

As time went by Beesocks gradually evolved into making sewn covers for things, mostly kindles. The story goes like this- buy kindle, lose job, panic, make cover, sell cover, lather, rinse, repeat! (I was a professional cookie and cake decorator, it was a switch!)

At first they were completely hand-stitched marvels of creation that took FOREVER to make. I approached my neglected sewing machine with extreme caution and eventually we came to an understanding... it would sew straight lines, and I would feed it thread (and cover it with stickers and tell it how pretty it is)

Each cover is carefully made by me and modeled by my herd of glamorous cover models- multiple Kindles, Nooks, and oodles of non-working demo tablets, as well as a herd of rescues (broken gadgets adopted from ebay and given new purpose as supermodels)

Making kindle covers allows me to fuse my obsessive love of fabric with the analytical 'make stuff work' side of my brain. It also allows me to live off of my own creativity, there is nothing like the feeling of making something useful and pretty, and sending it off into the world for someone to use and enjoy :)

Your cover will be made in a fragrance and smoke free studio by little old me, from start to finish, from cutting the rectangles of fabric and batting to that last bit of hand-finishing.

Allergy sufferers, please note that my supervisor Bob is of the feline persuasion. (Bob does the majority of his supervising with his eyes closed in the kitchen window sunbeam)

oh, and its because of the socks. They're stripey. So...

Frequently asked questions

What if I don't see my eReader or tablet model listed in your shop?

I can make covers for a great variety of devices, just because you don't see it listed doesn't mean I can't make a cover for it. I have a ton of working and non-working models of dozens of gadgets, and if I don't, I can usually make a cover based on detailed specs.

What if I'm not sure of the model or generation of my device?

If you can provide me with detailed measurements and (most helpfully) pics of the front and back or serial number, I can usually determine the corrrect model.

Can I send you some fabric?

Sure, but certain fabrics aren't suitable. The best fabrics are wovens, like cotton quilting fabric, cotton twill, or lightweight canvas duck. Sheer, stretchy, fuzzy, or furry fabrics will not work, or will super thick and heavy materials. Darker fabrics work best, designs with large amounts of white or light space aren't as durable and can show wear.

Good places to find fabric are here on Etsy, equilter, fabric dot com, and Spoonflower.

I am not able to use fabric with trademarked or licensed images, such as cartoon characters or sports teams.

I'm happy to create a custom cover, if you aren't sure it never hurts to ask.
