DIY eReader Case – Book Style

I love my Kindle, but I missed the feel (and ease) of holding a book. I am all about DIYing things, so I thought I’d make my own cover, and of course – share it with you!

If you have used this tutorial, I would love to see your cover! Here is just one example of one with slight mods. I love the use of a magnetic closure!

  1. You ruined a book for this???? 😢

  2. You can but it likely won't be as sturdy as upcycling a book cover 🙂

  3. I watched another video with similar instructions,however, the outcome, for me, was just a tad off. After watching yours, I realized that there is a much better way to attach the elastic which will make it more secure. Thanks so much for showing the back of your of your inside board. It was a real eyeopener.

  4. love it thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Thanks so much for the great tutorial! My daughter just received a Kindle for her birthday and she asked me to make her a case. I've watched several videos and yours is by far the easiest to follow! Thanks again 🙂

  6. I love this kind of cover for my Nook because it makes it feel like I'm reading a book. It looks good, it protects my nook well and lets you use the headphones, charger, volume and on/off buttons without taking the Nook out of the cover. I made the Beatles cover and I have gotten so many compliments on it that I decided to make several different covers for my friends.

  7. I freaking love this! I just got a Kindle as an early Hanukkah present and don't really know what to do with it…I miss my books. This gives a great feel to the ebook idea!

  8. It would work well for any ereader, notepad type product. Just try to find a book that it fits well inside. You can tell easily when the book is closed, hold your reader up to the side of the book and see if it will fit when closed.

    I really love this cover. I plan to make another when I buy some fabric I like better. I happened to have this laying around, so it's what I used. It's very sturdy, which is important to me (3 small children).
