I would join in and tell you how awesome they are (they really are), but I think the fact that I was sent here by a tweet by Adam Savage is even more awesome!

Msluna, I used E6000.  I know Molskein makes a cover for the DX and the Kindle2, but they're like 50 bucks!  Modding an old one sounds like a good idea.

I haven't thought of making one with pockets, wouldn't really have a use for them.

waterwoman, I used Foamies sheets like these:
and E6000 glue.

I know certain kinds of glue can actually disolve certain types of plastic/rubber so you might want to test it before you commit materials you can't replace cheaply.  I also know that certain glues don't stick to leather, so you might have to look into that as well.

Hope it comes out well!  Smiley

From a pattern on Ravelry.

Still need to flatten out the purl rows a bit...

Hee hee! Thanks! Cheesy

I don't know what it's like to make something without dog or cat hair involved.. but I'm sure it could be done.   Wink

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.
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.
