That all changed when I spotted this set of patterns on etsy.
I paid for and downloaded the patterns, and I was off! I have used this pattern to make covers for my Kindle, my friend's Kindle, and the Kindles of some of my customers. I have also made Nook covers and iPad covers using this pattern.
I would highly recommend this set of patterns to other sewists, and I highly recommend these covers to any e-reader and tablet owners. Incidentally, these covers can be purchased from me. :) Contact me for fabric selections, prices, and shipping information.
My favorite thing about this Kindle cover is that the large pocket on the left inside cover is large enough to slide the Kindle into when I am carrying it in my purse. This prevents items in my purse from sliding inside the cover and scratching the screen of my Kindle.
