Introduction: Custom Kindle Sleeve From Old Pair of Jeans.

Amazon wont ship to my country the sleeve that I wanted. So Idecided to make a custom one from an old pair of jeans.

This is my first instructable im open for suggestions in the comment sections.

Step 1: Materials and Tools



Whatever fabric you want to use ( I got mine from an old  pair of jeans)
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Scissors
Pen or marker
cardboard

Step 2:

Cut 2 pieces bigger than your device.
I used the backpocket part to get space for earphones you can use zipper, button or wahtever part you want.
Be creative and give those old clothes some good use.

Step 3: Getting the Size Right

You dont want your sleeve to be too big or small.
Use carboard to make an square with the same surface area and thickness as your device you can sew with this inside of the fabric and not risk the integrity of your device.

TURN AROUND THE FABRIC

unless you want the thread to be visible,. it looks kind of cheap if you do so.

Step 4: Marking Area

Mark with a pen the outline of your device and where will you sew.
Take in account your device isn´t flat, Use a paper and carboard version of your device to sew with it inside so you get the size right.

Step 5: Sewing

Pretty straightforward
sew 3 sides of the fabric where you marked them.
make sure the fabric is backwards so you can turn it around and it looks neat.

Step 6: After Sewing

This is how it looks after sewing

Step 7: Turn It Around

and this is it custom made Levis kindle sleeve

Step 8: Thanks for Watching.
