    I made a quick one just to protect it from scratches, but I am changing my design to included a handle. I actually broke my Kindle trying to prevent it from falling when I tripped. Grabbing it, I squeezed the screen and it didn't work right after that. SO, I want a handle so that I'm not holding it that way.

    All I did was make a padded rectangle double the size of the Kindle using leftover batting. I folded one side up until it securely held the Kindle. Then pinned, sewed on both sides. Then top stitched all around.

    I made one like this for my daughter's Nook. I didn't do the appliqued flower. It was a little long, so if you use this pattern, you might want to alter it for the Nook.

    I made one for my Kindle fire.. I made it with scraps on the outside, and a solid piece on the inside.. I put a piece of velcro to use as a closure.. It took maybe 1/2 hour.. You really don't need a pattern.. Just imagination.

    I think if I was to do one, I would want to slip some kind of stiffener into the sides. I'm thinking maybe the cardboard from an old binder? It would add a little extra protection along with the padded cover. I think d-rings on the corners for a detachable sholder strap would be nice too. That way if your hands are full, it is safe on your sholder.

    To stiffen is, try using a composition book. It's almost exactly the right size, not really stiff. And a pocket on the back for the charger.

    I just made mine sort of like a small padded quilted pillowcase. Then I made a small matching tote bag to put it in. Works for me.

    I think I might make mine more of a snap bag type ...I'll have to play around with measurements.

    I don't have one but I made one for a friend using the pattern from the moda bake shop. I just did it in colors my friend likes without all the cutsey stuff. It turned out ok. Everytime this question is asked everyone will tell you the most popular one is the moda one.

    I made them. For myself and family members. No pattern needed. I just took some muslin and basted a slip on cover then used that for my pattern. Patterns are too restricting and don't encourage me to do my own thing.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.
