Kindle Covers

 We just got our taxes back.  They went all to bills this year.  So not fun.  But we wanted to do something for each of our kids with a bit so for our 2 boys, we found Kindles on KSL.com for good deals.  My husband said they needed covers for them and bought them some material for me to make them one. :0)

Book light from the dollar store. ;0)
 I did it a bit different than the one I made myself.  I put felt on the one side to protect the Kindle a bit more. 
 Instead of corners, I made a heavy hold on the bottom and used elastic on the top.
Very impressed with how this turned out.

 You remember how I had to make 3 of mine to get it sort of right.  Well, you can see my first attempt didn't go so well either.  I had to cut some out and it doesn't meet up on the side.  I'll be making this Kindle another one this weekend after a birthday party.

 My husband found this material for my Dad and had to get it for him so I could make him a Kindle holder also.
