Video Tutorial: Kindle E-Reader Cover

Now added to the Whipstitch YouTube channel: a video version of my Kindle e-reader cover tutorial!

This has been a great project that’s been super popular on my blog for years, and I can tell you we honestly have seven of these at our house–and there are only five of us. It goes together REALLY fast and easily, and looks great in every fabric I’ve ever used–although I confess that my favorite is to use a teensy bit of one of my very favorite fabrics so I get to see it all the time!

I love that this cover has a pocket for long-term storage, but also that there’s a “cover” to protect the screen that can be held in place by a bit of elastic. It makes the e-reader feel more like a book.

Read the original posts here, here and here for step-by-step images–or follow along with the new VIDEO on the Whipstitch YouTube channel! You can also check the links above for READER COMMENTS if you have a different brand or version of e-reader–folks have been super generous with sharing their own alterations to the measurements and you might find yours there. Have fun sewing!

    Ok I love this! I found the original pattern first and it is a tad small for the current Fire 7 2019. I would add 3/4” to the height. Mine won’t fit in the pocket but that’s ok. I wish I’d added a loop of elastic for a stylus though. Thanks for a great tutorial. Though I made the squares 1/2” smaller and folded then m instead of sewing them. Easier. I needed to make one because I accidentally washed my current kindle. Had to go get a new one and can’t get a case for at least a week if the mail is on time. Though I’ll be using this one for a while. Oh and I used a fav calorie wells linen I’ve had stashe probable since 2012 LOl!

    How do I adjust the measurements for a different sized kindle? Thanks

    I bought my Kindle in June of this year (2021). It’s 6.5 (height) by 4.5 (width). I would take a half inch off of the measurements given. So, for example, the 12.5 inch piece could just be 12, the 8.5 could just be 8 inches. OR: YOU COULD JUST MAKE THE FOUR TRIANGLE PIECES AN INCH BIGGER, LIKE 4.4 INSTEAD OF 3″ X 3″. THAT WOULD HOLD IT IN.

    I hope. this helps.

      I just bought a Kindle Fire 10 (11 Gen, 2021). I was wondering if you would be able to advise on what size the fabric should be cut to fit that size tablet? The dimensions for this tablet is 9.73 x 6.53 x 0.36 inches.
