I have now made quite a few Kindle covers, let’s just say that Barry and I have one each and then I made three more, the third one being the best in my opinion as I have left a gap where you can flick the switch on and off so there is no need to take it out of the cover anymore. That really bugs me, so then, if I’m reading a knitting pattern I take a while to get to the end of a row, go to turn the page and the Kindle has switched itself off. I then have to take it out of the cover to restart it, not any more!!
remember the bendy cover? Barry now has that one…
this is mine, with the restraining elastic and the pocket for wires…
then I made this one, with a gap for the flicking of the switch
I thought I was being really clever making that gap but unfortunately it caused the kindle to lean slightly, can you see it leaning in the picture?
so then I made another one, an order this time..
see that gap in the holding pocket in the photo above? Well I thought I’d got it sussed but it still didn’t hold the Kindle quite as straight as I would have liked so then I made another one…
notice in the first photo that the gap is now right over the sliding in/off switch, both corners of that holding pocket are stitched down so the Kindle now stays level! Hoo-blimmin-ray!!
That last one is a sort of order, if the colours aren’t right for my customer I will list it in my shop.
Now my problem was with the green/orange Kindle cover….
I couldn’t sell it in my shop as it has a defect, the leaning Kindle!!
So I have decided to hold a giveaway for this gorgeous but slightly defective Kindle 3 Cover!
All you have to do is leave me a comment to this post, telling me why you would like a slightly leany over Kindle3 Cover! I will draw a name at random from the comments in a few days time, probably a week…depends how busy I am haha
This giveaway is for the cover only, not the contents, I’m sorry the Kindle is not included. I just love my Kindle and as soon as my new supply of board arrives I shall be making myself a new cover with a little gap in the supporting pocket! I can’t have a cover without a gap in it now can I??
Looking forward to hearing from you xx
