Kindle Cover/Tote


I was dismayed at the price of the kindle covers on amazon. I mean, a person just spent like $139 for a kindle, and they want another $35 to $85 for a cover for it? Well you know Sometimes old Rob is as cheap as a Republican cutting school funds, so I thought about making one- With little or no sewing skills, I ventured out and found some smaller canvas (9" X 11" X 3") shopping bags at Michael's, figuring it was done. But they were too big. Then I came up with an Idea… I folded them in half and they were the right size! Just a simple "Cross stitch down the side with some embroidery thread to keep it closed And All for under $5. I was so happy with mine, I made a second one for a Christmas gift!
