11th hour project

Guess what's in here?

Under that old book cover?

I got a wild hair to take my kindle on my trip to San Diego tomorrow to visit my friend Julie. 

But it needed a cover of some sort so I dug out a book cover about the right size, messed around with elastic, E6000, and some fabric, and lo... a cover emerged.

Not sure how long the elastic is going to stay stuck to the inside of the book cover, even with E6000, cause it's already starting to pull up the paper. But it should make it thru this trip, then I can do rivets or something.

Took me about an hour spread throughout the day as the glue dried each time.


  1. What a great idea! You are so clever!

  2. nicely done...I'm all about repurposing those old books...

  3. Hello, my Dear! I've come to you from The "Grow Your Blog" was over before I knew about it, but it was so nice of Vicki to leave the list up! Anyway, I always welcome new blogs to enjoy, and yours is delightful! I am now following you ~ please come and visit me if you get a chance!
    So nice to "meet" you!

  4. Great idea! I know it's frustrating when you put so much work and thought into creating something and find that it needs a bit more tweaking, but your idea of the rivets will do the trick. Plus, rivets are so cool. Love the hardware look, don't you?

  5. I love this idea. Now I need to make one for mine. I keep thinking I would buy a cover, but why? This is so grand, and I can make several to match my mood, outfit, style... Oh the possibilities.
