I made this a long while ago, and thought I'd lost all the pictures. But as I was cleaning out my old files... Lo and behold! A whole folder named "Kindle Cover." Who knew?
Anyway, here is my trial-and-error, make-it-up-as-you-go attempt at making a kindle cover for my favorite e-reader. I kind of like how it turned out (aside from the color scheme, which was what I had to choose from in my scrap bag) and thought you might too.
What you'll need:
Fabric of your choice (about a yard)
Thread and other sewing supplies
Craft foam (six sheets)
First, measure the width and height of your device. For the sake of simplicity, I'll say the width is 6 inches. Take that number and multiply it by two (twelve inches), then add 3 inches (15 inches total). Take your height measurement, we'll say 8 inches, and add 1.5 inches (9.5 inches total). Cut your fabric into two rectangles using those totals: 9.5 inches tall and 15 inches wide by my example.
Now sandwich your fabric rectangles right sides together. The batting strip should be on the outside of your sandwich at this point. Sew along three edges, leaving the top side open like a giant pocket.
Next, lay it open and lay your e-reader on the side you would like it to be held in. I put mine on the right-hand side. Measure in from each corner about two inches and draw a dot on the fabric at that spot. This is where you're going to sew down the ends of your elastic.
