    A ha! New protection for my kindle

    :-D :-D :-D I found this little hard cover planner laying around with an old calendar and such in it so I tossed that and made the padding and the kindle holder and used a sticky velcro to put on the case and then sewed regulatr velcro to the fabric and stuck it onto the sticky one inside the case. I think it looks great and I put plenty of padding in it so it will give it good protection and such. The two color elastic is some thing I found in the thrift store and they are little girls head headbands. There were 6 of them there and they are diffrent colors, so no need to cover with fabric. Enjoy, Huggies, Fay

    This just a planner case, it zips cloed

    very cool! I need one of those! My kindle case is just a padded fabric case. I was going to use a plastic pencil box but it didn't fit. I need a hard case cause I usually carry my kindle in a big tote bag with lots of other stuff, including books. haha! My DH said "I thought the kindle was supposed to take the place of books"---well not my quilty books! ;) I already popped the back off by accident :oops: because it slid its way under my books....ahhh...and I was worried about my daughter taking care of her Kindle :roll: Your idea is a great one! THANKS for sharing!
