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
Pen or marker
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
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
