E-reader and Tablet Covers

My husband surprised me with a Kindle last Christmas, and I love it!  I was concerned about keeping it safe when I carried it in my purse, so I purchased a cover for it.  I hate that cover!  It is bulky and heavy.  I knew that I could make a cover for my Kindle, but I could not find a pattern that I liked. 

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. 

Another great thing about these covers is that they are padded, but still lightweight enough to hold when reading from the e-reader or iPad.  I never use my Kindle naked anymore.  I have a Kindle cover to match every purse that I own.  (More about my custom made purses at a later date.)

Here are a few pictures of some e-reader covers that I have made.
