Covers for the Kindle 2 Cover!

My friend Anne absolutely loves her Kindle 2 reader.  Two weeks ago she asked me to come up with a design for a decorative and personalized cover for her Kindle 2 cover.   There is nothing wrong with her Kindle 2 cover;  Anne's just wanted pretty.   And who doesn't like pretty?

After obsessing over this cover for a few days by looking online and just plain old thinking about it, I finally came up with 2 types of covers.   For one I use prequilted fabric for the outside fabric and machine-embroider a monogram on the front. The inside is lined with a coordinating single weight cotton. The Kindle 2 cover slips into side pockets.  There is also a small pocket, per Anne's request, that can be used to hold a credit card, some cash or a key.
Here are some additional pictures of the cover I make for the Kindle 2 cover.  The second photo shows the Kindle 2 with the covers folded behind the Kindle 2:

The 2nd type of cover for the Kindle 2 cover I designed is made from felt.  Because the cover is not lined, I machine embroider initials or a small monogram in the lower right hand corner. The inside small pocket covers up the back of the machine embroidery.  All of its seams are top-stitched and exposed which can be seen in the pictures below:

Please email me for more information about fabrics and ordering the covers I make for the Kindle 2 cover.


  1. Hi Arlene,
    I like your covers. I have a Nook from Barnes and Noble and bought a cover from them. I'll show you what I have if you would like to add another type of cover. I really like the softer aspect of fabric.

  2. Hi Carol-I'd love to see your Nook. Needless to say, I have been obsessing over the readers since my friend asked for a cover for her cover. I am currently trying to convince myself I don't need a digital reader!
