I received a Kindle for Christmas and I have got into the habit of reading in bed, curled up on the sofa, anywhere the mood takes me and just leaving my Kindle wherever I like! Now, I thought, what I need is Kindle case.................. Moments later after searching the internet I find several turorials that seem to fit the bill. Soooooooooooooo how about a swap? Here's the deal.........................

  • You make a Kindle cover for one partner from the many tutorials available online. My preference is this one cos it's beautiful, clear and well- written.


thanks you so much to the Sometimes Crafter Christina for the kind permission to use the tute and the graphic!

  • Look at your partner's profile to check colours/styles that they like.

  • When you have finished send it off

  • Don't flake!

  • Flakers will not be tolerated, if you cant deliver don't sign up. *I reserve the right to turn you away from this swap if you have a dodgy rating

Any questions? Just ask me.

Ooh I don't even have a kindle but I think I will have to sign up as that bag is just too cute!

Ha! ha! @supacarol , i know just what you mean, and check out the tutorial, the other photos are just as delicious!

i'm getting an ipad soon, would the kindle case fit an ipad too?

Toupti 03/ 3/2012 #

@Brendasue ~ I have both and the iPad is a bit bigger then the kindle.

I'm watching this swap up until closer to the sign up deadline. I'm still a beginner sewer and I'm not quite sure I can do something that is swapable.

I reckon you can adjust the pattern for an ipad by adding another row of squares or by making the squares ever so slightly bigger. Either way it'll be gorgeous @Brendasue

I just made one to check how it would come out, and it came out so nice I have sent it off to my aunt for her birthday. I did it with a button instead of a velcro dot. so cute.

katiewoo 03/ 5/2012 #

I made one too! Added a vintage button and hey presto! it looks the bee's knees! I'm off to do another.....

I used this url for the above link: http://www.sometimescraftersmom.blogspot.com/ ...but it doesn't take you to the tutorial...

Thanks for helping out @TerryF thought I'd grabbed the correct link!

Another pesky question:) Can I ask the person who sends to me, to make an iPad case. I don't have a kindle and so a kindle case isn't much use to me. I can give the measurements if you need them. But if that's not posible, let me know, so that I can drop out of the swap without any problems. Thanks! :)

I cant see a problem with that, let me know if there is once the partners are assigned and I will make you an ipad case! K

I'd like to sign up but I also have an iPad. I'm game to make either.

parttimeliontamer 03/19/2012 #

I've just joined but I too would need an iPad case.

I have a Kindle, but I wouldn't mind making an iPad or different-sized case for my partner. I think we just need to let our partners know what device we have or the dimensions, since it seems even different versions of Kindles vary in size, and some may have Nooks, too. I would say just to focus on it being an electronic device case swap. (Otherwise it may end up a general purse swap since the cases can be so cute!)

I would like a kindle case as I am hoping to get a kindle at some point! until then I can just put a book in it!!!
