Kindle Case

With temperatures around 100, I've been forced into my house cave, i.e., the basement. Ooh, can we start that? Let's call basements "house caves" from now on. Anyway, as you know in my house cave is a craft bunker, where it is a lovely 70 degrees. I've been wanting to make a cover for my kindle for a long time, because the one it came with was totally ineffectual. It had no mechanism for actually holding the kindle in the cover. Dur.

I used this tutorial, which is intended for an iPad, so I did change the measurements. I also added a third layer of batting.

It is actually quite sturdy, and I would totally put it in a bag and not worry about anything happening to the kindle.

And yes, I have a Kindle 1, which I got only 3 years ago, but makes it practically ancient in technology years. It works fine though, so screw you planned obsolescence!

Someday, when I get a Kindle, you'll have to make me one of those.

I'm with Jax. When I get AJ a Kindle you might get a random email with an offer of money. I really like the fabric you chose.

Should I send you the measurements for my bathroom window covering since you're looking for things to do in your woman cave.

If I had a basement I would refer to it as my 'house cave' (not as my 'woman cave,' Andrew. That has INNUENDOS all over it) and I would hang out in said cave. HOUSE CAVE! I NEED YOU!

Hey, nice job! I like the fabric, too.

Great job - I'm making some the same way for some e-readers too! Thinking about using fusible fleece and batting...
