Step 1: Materials Required
Rexin / Faux leather (approx 2'x2')
Elastic (preferably round cross section)
Foam sheet (2'x1') !5mm thick or anything lying around would do
You will need access to Sewing machine
Sticker Cutting machine/ Laser cutting machine required for making the logo (optional)
Step 2: Prototype
I believe that the cover is very useful especially when you are reading lying on the bed. You can use the cover as a support to make it stand on your tummy on its own :) or on the bed lying sideways so that you can read it without holding it!
This is a very important step as it reduces the chances of making major mistakes when we build the case using actual materials.
In the prototype I realized that I hate the frame which is holding the kindle in its place. I wanted something which merges with the reader smoothly. The case felt very rigid while holding it and I wanted something smoother and softer as I would be mostly holding it for long durations.
Step 3: Making
Cut two foam sheets of the same dimensions mentioned above and stick it to the MDF board
Take the rexin/faux leather seat and stitch the ends creating a hole on the edges so that we can insert the elastic thread through it later.
As we can't have a collar on the inside edge of the reader, we have to paste one of them on the MDF sheet.
Cover the rexin on the outside first and then on the inside. Paste it using the Synthetic Rubber based Adhesive.
Insert the elastic thread, tighten it and tie it.
Cut a hole for the USB cord
