How to make a Kindle case from an old book

I hadn’t intended to cut up the used book I bought online. But it turned out to be exactly the right size to house my Kindle, and it wasn’t in great shape to begin with, and my whole philosophy about digital publishing is that the physical container is not eternal and shouldn’t be treated with too much reverence… so it seemed like a perfect time to try to make my own retro Kindle case.

And I know this isn’t a new concept, but it’s the first time I tried it, so it was new to me.





I’ve uploaded some photos to Flickr as well, in case you’d rather skip the video and just see detailed beauty shots of my terrible sewing skills.
