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.

Most of it was in my scrap bins for a while but I am guessing it mainly came from fabric.com

Amazing covers!

I'm still wondering wether or not I'll get one... but really, the looks of it aren't appealing.
I'd love to see one book-like cover...

Is it wrong to want to buy a Kindle just so that I can make one of these?!

These are all beautiful!  I've been wanting to sew my own Nook case (because the Kate Spade one I want to buy is ridiculously priced at $85!), and you've definitely inspired me Smiley

Super cute! Great idea for scrap fabric use. Did you use cardboard or something else to stiffen the cover?

I used peltex and 2 layers of heavy fusible interfacing and 1 layer of fusible fleece.  It was a beast to sew through but so much better for sturdiness!
