I decided to make a Kindle case for a friend. I was pretty happy with the last one I made so I stuck to the same basic materials and structure. I chose a vintage Hardy Boys book. The cover art is cool, and the book is the right size to fit my friend’s e-reader.

I’ve seen several of different styles of e-reader cases made from hardcover books. I went to a great craft fair where one artist was selling a bunch of really beautiful cases. Only problem—they were $80! Wayyyy out of my price range, especially since I knew I could make one myself.  I looked all over the house for a hardback book that would be the right size and thickness for a Kindle Fire. I also wanted the book to have interesting cover art and preferably be a book that I’ve read and enjoyed. My sisters and I loved reading Nancy Drew when we were growing up. We had loads of copies, and I had a feeling they would be the right dimensions for a Kindle Fire. After searching the house from top to bottom, I came up empty. I did find a few well-loved copies of the Hardy Boys, but I wanted to make this case for my sister, who was never a fan of those tricksters.
