So you got your new Kindle, but it doesn't come with a protective case. You could buy one of course, but for 5 dollars and in 20 minutes you could make one that has tentacles!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
4 tentacle sponges from Dollar Tree ($4)
1 CD book with zipper from Dollar Tree ($1)
needle and thread
Step 2: Cut Things Up
cut open the sponges along one edge and remove the sponge inside. Cut away the flat scrubby backing cloth.
Trim away the excess seams from the tentacle side. You'll wind up with 4 5" x 4" squares of tentacle cloth.
Cut apart the CD case and extract the zipper.
Step 3: Sew the Tentacles Together
Sew together the tentacle sections from two sponges.
Push back any wayward tentacles so they don't get stuck in the seam you're about to make.
stitch together the tentacle clothes from the front side, carefully keeping the tentacles out of the seam
flip it over and reinforce the seam from the other side
Step 4: Finish the Tentacle Envelope
With tentacle sides pressed together, finish up the side seams with needle and thread.
Add the zipper. You only need about 5 inches of it, so you can cut away the excess and just sew the end closed.
Yay, cuddly protection for your kindle!
