I have been on a Kindle cover making kick Smiley  I have 2 more that I haven't taken pictures of yet too.  Made with an etsy pattern with a few minor modifications.

Those are cool!  I may have to look for that pattern - I have a friend with a kindle (I haven't jumped on that bandwagon yet . . . ), and that would make a great present for her!  Can you post the Etsy link?  Thanks! Grin

Beautiful! I love all of the Amy Butler fabrics! I need to make something like this for my Kobo. I hope mine turns out even half as nice as yours do! Great job  Smiley

I bought a nook a couple of hours ago. I'm thinking I may need to do the same.

Thanks Smiley

The only advice I have about the pattern is to use double the interfacing. I used a mixture of craft fuse and fusible fleece.  Also, just after I turned it but before sewing the hole closed I stuffed a piece of peltex in to keep it stiffer.  I like the feel much better, not so flimsy now.
