3  Kindle cover! Pictures. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jinn on: November 28, 2010 10:14:10 AM
So I got a Kindle.. but I refuse to pay $30+ for a cover for it.  So I made one...

Here's some of the stuff I used if you want to make your own:


Old book. Mine was 10 from the library sale.
Sheets of craft foam.
Glue.
Elastic.
Fabric.
Razor knife.
Helpful doggie optional.

I don't have pictures of all the steps, but it wasn't all that complicated.



Cut the pages out of a book that's close to the same size as your eReader.
Cut foam sheets to fit just a bit smaller than the cover.  For the left side, I made it long enough to cover the spine area of the book.
Cover foam sheets with fabric of your choice.  I originally wasn't going to bother with any sewing, but it was much easier to sew the fabric to cover the foam than trying to mess with gluing it, so I did.
Glue the fabric covered foam sheet to the front cover.
For the inside back cover where your reader will sit, you can either sew the elastic to the corners before you glue it down, or just slip the ends under the foam as you are gluing it down.

I would suggest clamping the ends where the elastic is attached while the glue dries.  

Overall, it's pretty simple, cheap.. and I think, more protective that a simple fabric cover.

Love!! Great painting.  Half-blood is also my favorite of the books and Snape my favorite character.  I've been meaning to do a painting myself, but haven't gotten to it.
Well, I did a tiny wee version on my shoe, but I can't exactly sit and stare at it.


Would love to sit and stare at yours though!  Good job.  Grin

See you've got a stack of Charlaine Harris in the background. Love her too, hee hee.

6  Re: the craftiest scooter(s) ever! Post em' if you got em'! in Completed Projects by jinn on: June 26, 2007 07:20:05 PM
I don't have a scooter, but I made a tank bra for my Ninja 250..  I used magnets to hold it to the tank, but I'm not happy with how it sits so I might redo it with elastic.

It's black vinyl with red stitching and cherry trim...

8  Altoid Belt Buckle... Curiously Handy. in Completed Projects by jinn on: December 29, 2006 07:32:09 PM
For my mp3 player.. or whatever else I could fit in I suppose.
I'm not sure how long it'll last, but I think it's fun in the meantime.

I used a drill, some 14 gauge wire from the hardware store, hot glue, and some fabric and felt to line it.

Sorry about the phone cam pics.. the battery in my camera died when I turned it on.  Tongue

I simplified the pattern quite a bit because I am a knitting gimp.. and I did reverse the pattern.. sort of.  I just used some blue heather TLC that I got for a buck.. and my camera can't take a decent pic indoors, but here are mine anyway.

Very cosy too!  Smiley
