Kindle Cover

I'm getting on the Kindle Cover bandwagon!

I had no idea how to make a Kindle Cover so I made a practice cover with scrap fabrics first before cutting into my favorite fabrics!  I knew I wanted a hard cover, corner triangles, and an elastic band to hold it closed, the only thing I didn't know was how to put them all together!

Here is the result of some serious sewing engineering!:
Elastic closure
Black and Lime Green Chevron and Text Fabrics 
Front cover is a fabric covered 5x7 paint canvas that protects the Kindle when it's rolling around in my purse and the corners hold it in when reading
I added a pocket to the front cover 
There are 2 layers of batting in the back of the cover to offer protection
This was pretty easy to put together after my first practice round.  I'm happy with it so far!

Wishing you big waves and an artful day!


  1. Hello Madame! This will be perfect for all your travels! Great Job!!!

    1. Merci! Only 8 days until departure (not that I'm counting)!

  2. I love your kindle cover! The text print is great, it looks like it fits your kindle perfectly. Nicely done! I need to fix mine--too big.

    1. Thanks Kate! It fits really well, the only thing is that the white fabric was not the best choice, starting to turn a little gray! But I'm happy with the design overall!
