My Kindle Cover

Yesterday, when I wrote about sewing my Kindle cover, I did not expect any questions or comments on it. What a surprise for me when I opened the comment notice in my email.

This is the inside of the cover. When I sewed this, I kept thinking that there was a lot of extra room in the tabs. So I did what any good seamstress would do ~ I got my scissors and I began cutting. Actually, the space would have been taken up when I sewed all the pieces together and finished with the top stitching. This flower fabric, is something that I have a ton of  and I totally love it! It's so hip! yeah, right...

 As you can see in the picture above, the Kindle sits very snug in the tabs. I really like this, since I have a fear of it falling out. Now that I have this and am using it, I think the next one I make will not have the extra flap. That flap was suppose to be the home of a pocket, but since I cut the cover to where it would close snug, I left the pocket off. Since I whipped this up rather quickly, I used round velcro since that is what I pulled out of the basket first.

 In the last picture, you can see when it is closed that my cutting was not completely straight, but I was flying blind on this project. I love denim! It's one of my favorite fabrics to sew with and I'm a denim kind of girl. Nothing fancy schmancy for me. I finished it off with a pink button that goes with my contrast fabric.

As for selling these in my shop... I'm still thinking about it. With a little arm twisting, I might could be persuaded into listing a few.  If you are seriously interested in one, let me know and I'll be happy to come up with something for you.


  1. I love your Kindle cover you made, Lori! Last year I won a mug holder and my Kindle fits perfectly in it, so that is what I use for mine.
    I also loved that you put the links to the books you downloaded to your Kindle because I followed suit. :)
    Have a great day!

  2. You did a great job! My hubby has a Kindle Fire and just bought a cover/case for his. I love how you made yours. Very cute. Very feminine! :)
    You should definitely put some of these in your shop!


  3. You should definitely sell these in your shop. I would like one for my mom.
