Make Your Own Harry Potter Kindle Cover


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.

Beaker Bag

Beaker Bag by Whimsical Frippery

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!

Be sure to poke around the rest of her site, where you will find herb planters of the AT-AT and R2D2 variety, as well as a variety of embroidery hoops (including Buffy, Angel, and Adventure Time).

Spoilers, Sweetie.

As someone who’s been coveting a River Song journal since it was first introduced, when I came across this post in an Livejournal Community called Crafty Tardis, I knew that I had to have it.

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.

To Boldly Crochet a Starfleet Insignia

Star Trek crochet Starfleet insignia

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?
