I’ve made a couple kindle cases already, and both posts are consistently popular on Duct Tape Doodles. Today, I decided to create an updated case, which contains a felt lining. The lining offers more protection than duct tape on its own, and also lets the kindle slide in and out more smoothly. Still, only rely on this case for minor falls and scratches. Though I made this case for my kindle fire (first generation), the measurements can be adjusted to fit e-readers of various sizes. Here’s the tutorial (Sorry about the gloomy editing; it’s raining outside.)
1. Cut the felt to the correct size. Mine was 5.5″ by 16,” and I found these dimensions by adding an half inch to the height of my kindle and multiplying by two, and also adding an inch to the width. Depending on the thickness of your kindle, you may need to add more or less.
2. Cover the non-fuzzy side of your felt in duct tape. Trim the ends.
3. Fold the felt in half vertically (also known as the “hamburger” way).
4. Cut two more strips of tape, and fold them over the left and right edges of the case. You’ll need to fold the sides of the case over along with the strips, to prevent any stickiness inside the pouch.
The process is tricky to explain, but I promise the kindle holder is easy to create! Make sure to comment any questions, and I’ll definitely help you out :).
