10 DIY Kindle and e-Reader Cover Tutorials

One of my favorite Christmas gifts this past year was a Kindle Paperwhite from the hubs. I hinted (not-so-subtly) that I'd really like one, and he went out of his way to track one down at the last minute, as all the local places were sold out. Once I had the Kindle, of course I had to have a stylish cover for it. I ordered an adorable patterned one online, but I'd like to try my hand at making one too. I thought today would be perfect to do a little round up of DIY Kindle and e-Reader Cover Tutorials!

Love the funky zebra print with hot pink lining. This is a nice "drop-in" sleeve.

The one I bought online is super-cute. I did a maaaajor search on Etsy and decided on this one from Covers by Diana. (She is not an advertiser, I just wanted to give her a shout-out). Great communication and willing to do customizations! Fabulous quality.

Do you use an e-Reader? How do you like to transport yours?

  1. OOOh, I love that old book cover the best! Thanks Amanda! I do have one, but just got a generic one from Ebay. Totally boring. :-)

  3. I actually made a few e-reader cases a few years ago. It's a great way to add a little personality and protect your investment.

    I love the book one. And the one that stands like a tripod.

  4. I would love to make a cute cover for the iPad but it is shared by our whole family. I don't think the husband would appreciate a ruffle! Maybe I could make it navy so its a "manly" ruffle?

  5. I adore having my eBook reader stacked with such a variety of decisions!!Regardless of what my reading mood,I can discover something intriguing in the moment.I don't love not having the capacity to skip forward or backwards as effectively as with a paper book.

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
