Kindle sporran?  Isn't that something you get at the drugstore that comes in a tube?    

Actually, a sporran is like a little packet that can be threaded onto a belt.  It's typically worn by men who wear kilts because kilts don't have pockets.  This is a variation on that idea which will allow me to carry my Kindle around hands free.

I've been thinking about making this ever since I discovered coursera.  I enjoy listening to the lectures while I'm doing other things, but without this I would otherwise have to devote an extra hand to holding the tablet.

Step 1: materials

small amount of fabric
sewing machine
two 5 inch lengths of thin wire

Also... Corset boning will "spring back" unlike a wire hanger.
Another useful way to stiffen the front would be to use good iron-on interfacing or use corset boning the same basic way you would the wire hanger or skewer. A skewer might break too easily.
I was wondering how this would be useful then I saw the lat pic....oooh....while you are working....definitely useful if you are no where near a power outlet to consult digital plans. Nice.
Glad you like it!
Great instructable. I always like seeing projects where sewing is used. I think those early guys/gals with a needle (awl) and thread (sinew) were some of the first "makers ". Thanks for posting.
Yes a sewing machine is an incredibly versatile tool - you can accomplish an awful lot with just sewing stuff.
Bamboo skewers might be easy to get and not scratch the screen.
good suggestion, thanks!
