I LOVE books and was pretty skeptical when the Kindle first came out. Then a good friend of mine let me play with hers on vacation and I was instantly converted. It's crystal clear even in bright sunlight, I can literally never run out of books to read, and it's always the same size & weight so it fits perfectly in my purse! My only complaint was my pretty pink leather case was getting scratched up in my purse... obviously it needed a cozy! Probably as a result of my rave reviews Kindles are the go to gift in my family this year and I had the perfect companion gift, cozies for everyone. In the spirit of the holidays I'm sharing so you can make your own:-)
This measures 8 1/2" x 6" and was made to accommodate my Kindle with the cover on. This also nicely fits Android tablets. Measure your device and make any sizing adjustments before starting.
Cut the following:
(8) 2" squares print for zigzag
(8) 2" squares solid for zigzag
(1) 9" x 2 1/2" solid
(1) 9" x 7" solid
(1) 9" x 3 1/2" print for flap
(1) 9" x 14" print for inside lining
(1) 10" x 15" batting scrap
Make (16) 1 1/2" HSTs begin by drawing a line diagonally on the wrong side of each of the (8) solid 2" squares.
Fold bottom of cozy up to create pouch leaving 2 1/2" at the top. Topstitch along sides and top being sure to close hole left for turning. If desired add stick-on velcro dots to flap.
Add your Kindle and you're ready to go!
