Crochet Kindle Cover (or a Clutch)



Since the craft show this weekend was such a bust, I had plenty of time to work on a new crochet project.  I had seen this free Lion Brand pattern before and wanted to give it a try.  Technically it called the "Perfect Purse"; however, I believe a better use for it is as an e-reader cover.


I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Pagoda and a size G crochet hook.  (This color is absolutely beautiful in person, but I am having a difficult time photographing it.) I followed the bulk of the pattern exactly--with very few deviations.  I used a slip stitch to bind the sides and altered the button a little.

My Kindle fits in perfectly.
Here's the button variation that I did.  I'm not in love with
it, but I like it a lot better than the original.

The lacy flap is so pretty.  It really adds a nice touch.



While I am very happy with the way this turned out I think I am still partial to my own hot pink case, so this one just might end up in my Etsy store one day soon.  (Unless my sister is planning on getting an e-reader soon, because this color is so her!)


If you liked this post, I'd love if you'd follow me!
