I had this idea to make a kindle cover with this little book I went out to buy from our Dollar Store. I took out the pages in the middle & it is softly padded inside. I really wanted it to have a zipper with this one but I just couldn't get it to work out! I tried but somehow I got the zipper to zip up backwards? I just couldn't "SEE" how to fix it so I went this way instead. I took a scrap pc of one of my favorite fabrics & added a velcro strip to the back pocket & I have a candy button to add as well. & as you can probably tell I sewed the elastic on the wrong side so now the button will be on the back! But all in all I think this is just fine. & besides that this is all I have left of the cow fabric LOL

Great idea to use a book.
With a zipperfoot it is no problem to sew zippers. After years, I had problems too, but now I like it
