Fun Kindle Cover


I absolutely love to read and for Christmas I got a Kindle touch. It was like pulling teeth talking me into this thing. There is nothing better than holding a book and turning a page and I knew I would be giving that up. I can honestly say now that I love my Kindle. The easy access to books without going to the library or store is extremely convenient. I also like the fact that I can checkout books from the library for free.

Kindle covers can be quite expensive. That’s when I started browsing Pinterest and saw a tutorial for sewing your own cover. You can find the tutorial over at Skip to my Lou. I cannot say enough good things about this tutorial! It is incredibly easy to follow. It’s even numbered!

Here’s how mine turned out:


The elastic provides the perfect place to put your Kindle while you read.


When you aren’t reading you can slide it into the side pocket. I also keep my charger in one of the pockets.


I got my fabric from Hobby Lobby. It’s bright and colorful, just what I wanted!


It’s thin enough to fit into my purse. Or maybe my purse is big enough to fit it. :)


And now a few fun facts about me and books. Get ready to be thrilled.

  • My favorite author is Jodi Picoult.
  • My second favorite author is Nicholas Sparks.
  • I just got done reading The Hunger Games series… GREAT series.
  • One of my favorite series is Harry Potter. Yes, Harry Potter.
  • I don’t read books more than one. There are two exceptions: The Notebook and Harry Potter

I’m always looking for new authors/books to read. Have any suggestions?!
