Kindle Cover-DONE

I'm so excited, I got a Kindle and I made a cover for it. I'm on fire, literally its a kindle fire.
Den and I did this a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to posting it. It's been a little busy here. 
I thought it screamingly funny to use one of my own books to make a kindle cover. Funny or narcissistic? Everyone will be like, "Wow, she leaves her own book laying around to brag." And then when they open it, POW-its a kindle. Now, its funny and not narcissistic. I hope.
I had to change it up a bit from the original instructions. My book was a bit larger than what the original instructions said to mutilate. So I felt that I didn't need a strap to hold it closed. I'm a rebel, you knew this.
I have to say that it did hurt a little to mutilate a book. Also, my book has a sleeve that I wanted to incorporate so I had more to glue. If I'm this rebellious now, can you imagine what high school was like? To Hell with using a cross walk!!!!!!
Aren't those some sexy hands back there? I say yes. Well, I say no more than yes.
I glued the felt to the inside of the book. Den is cutting me two red strips since the felt was short.
After it was all glued, I put the "innards" back in it, to hold the felt in place.
I found something heavy to hold it in place.
Can you tell that we were cooking while doing this project? It's a never-ending thing there. Den likes it, me not so much.
Den decided that the weight needed to be distributed more evenly for the glue to dry more evenly. No, we didn't drink the wine. Wish I had thought of it, though.
And there she is. The cover is a bit too big but I'm fine with it.
The kindle is being held in place with velcro. And it really holds it well.
And this is what it looks like closed. All narcissistic and sneaky like.
Closing the book on this one,
Sonya Ann

What's even better is when you're out in public reading and rereading your own book!! Love the idea, no patience to do it - would rather drink the wine if you don't want it :)

Love it, what a neat idea! And if you don't have your own awesome book cover hanging about you could look for something totally perverted or weird in terms of a book title to create one. Or maybe that's just me...

Jane-And the wine is gone. Sigh, that stuff doesn't live long here.
