My niece just celebrated her birthday and my parents bought her a Kindle Fire as a gift. I usually make her something homemade for birthdays and a cover just seemed like a perfect fit! I searched the web for some tutorials and came across two that I tried. The first one is from www.chicaandjo.com.
I had to make a couple small adjustments as it was too big originally and the kindle was not tall enough to reach elastic on all four sides. It was probably some mistake I made...but it was a quick fix to get it to fit.
The supplies I used were cotton fabric that I bought at Joann's a long time ago, colored elastic that I ordered from PickYourPlum.com and the cardboard was from the back of a card stock book I had in my scrapbooking supplies.
For the second one I decided to make a padded case using the same supplies minus the cardboard and the addition of felt, a button, and padded interfacing. This one came together quickly and was super simple to make. If you are looking for a quick cover, this is the one to do. http://treasuresfortots.blogspot.com
I like the way both cases turned out and they both serve a different purpose. I am happy with the way they turned out and I hope my niece gets some good use out of them.
