As more readers use the Amazon Kindle and other costly electronic reading devices, eReader covers have never been more important. Or expensive. You can spend between $40 and $110 in a single click trying to protect your machine.
Over at Chica & Jo, we found a handy how-to (and that video embedded above) for sewing your own eReader cover–it includes measurements for other devices as well. Did you buy a cover for an eReader? Share your recommendations in the comments for a future post.
Here’s an excerpt: “Like any good electronic device that you’ve invested money in, you’ll want to protect your Kindle with a cover. Ideally, it will be a useful and protective cover that’s also inexpensive. And it would be nice if it could prop the Kindle up for table-top reading or let the Kindle lay flat for hand-held reading. Oh, and it’s got to look crazy cute, too! Tall order, right? … why buy when you can make your own? So that’s just what I did. And I’m gonna show you how to make one, too! It’s really quite easy, believe it or not.”
