Kindle and Notebook Holder

My kids pooled their money together and bought me a Kindle for Christmas.
I love it and that it’s the perfect size to take with me anywhere.
I wanted it protected, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money.

I found this journal at Home Goods for $4 and knew it would be perfect.
I started by cutting the pages out with a sharp knife.

Then I took some white fleece I had on hand and cut it to fit as pockets on the inside covers.
I just hot glued them to the inside of the book.
I used fleece because the fabric gives a little and it’s soft.

I made the pocket for the notebook a little shorter so it would be easy to get in and out.

They fit perfectly.

But it was a little too simple so I added some ribbon trim to the top.

And to the center to cover where the pages were cut out.

I don’t worry about it getting scratched or damaged now, plus I love how it looks.
And it slips easily into my bag.
Oh, and the latch is magnetic so it stays in place.
I think it turned out pretty good for only $4.

Too late! I just bought a cover for my kindle and it cost $39. A day short and a dollar late. Thanks for the post.

I’m going to look for a book NOW! I broke my first Kindle, it was under warranty, so they JUST sent a new one yesterday. This will be made as soon as I can fire up the trusty hot glue gun! Thanks for the tutorial.

Thank you for such a lovely and practical Kindle cover. I plan to make several for gifts but can’t tell from your instructions how to affix the pockets to the inside of the cover. Can you tell me how to do that step. Thank you for this and your many organizing and decorating tips. I truly enjoy your blog. Thanks again.

I just used hot glue to add the pockets. It’s been months and it’s held up fine so far.
