Thanks to the crazy Black Friday sales this past November, I got an uber cheap Kindle Fire for the holidays. So, I’ve been on the hunt for some kind of cover or sleeve to make for my new toy, and I found this great tutorial. It’s a DIY Harry Potter Kindle Covers tutorial by Jess at Practically Functional. The tutorial has lots of great pictures and takes you step-by-step through the entire process of making these cute Kindle Covers. You’ll need to come up with your own pattern pieces, but everything’s made from felt which is a pretty easy medium to work with. Plus, you can size this DIY to fit whatever e-reader (or tablet, or phone, etc . . . ) you want. What’s more, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could adapt the pattern for a character from another House too.

I recently found Whimsical Frippery‘s blog (aka Poppy) and am very impressed with the variety of projects she shares there. Today I’m going to feature her Beaker Bag, because who doesn’t love a little Beaker in their life. Imagine the conversation starter this project would be!
Check out this unbelievable Kindle cover! Flickr-er Almost Summer needlefelted this and the attention to detail is fantastic!
I can only imagine how long this must have taken her and she didn’t even keep it! That is a fabulous friend. My favourite part is the sky. It looks great!
eveywiecherton on Livejournal gives amazing steps on how to create your own River Song cover. The steps are clear, with pictures to help guide the way, and I’m sure it can be adjusted to fit any e-reader you may have.
Granted, getting an e-reader should probably come first, but still. Once I finally buy one, making this cover will be the first order of business.
I was so excited to find this tutorial for a crochet Starfleet insignia – I’ve been wanting to make a cozy for my husband’s Kindle Fire, and now I can attach this insignia to it. I suppose I’ll make the cozy either blue or gold, because we all know what happens to anything covered in red…
I can also think of all sorts of other ways to use a Star Trek symbol – Christmas ornaments, afghans, hair clippies, binky holders, backpack embellishments… What would you like to adorn with a bit of Starfleet bling?
