Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for ...

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is my most advanced pattern. All of the steps are thoroughly explained, and you really just need to know how to use your own sewing machine, but some of the steps take a little longer than my usual sewing projects.
  • It may be obvious that such a professional product would take more skill than other things, but I wanted to be clear on that.

Pattern Description:

I liked the functionality of the cover stands available on Amazon, but I wanted mine to be made by me and in designer fabrics, so I spent hours (lots of them) to figure out how make a professional looking cover stand for my kindle fire. If you are like me, you will love this case.

This does not fit the new HD Kindle Fire. I will release a new pattern for that one. This pattern only fits the original Kindle Fire.

This cozy also functions as a stand for your Kindle Fire, so you can watch a movie, read, or play games on a table top, hands free.

Your Kindle Fire remains functional while in this clever cozy. There is an opening in the bottom for the charger and head phones to plug in. There are openings in the top for the speakers.

The screen cover folds back, you re-attach the velcro closure inside out, and voila, you have a stand!

This cover is not meant to protect against dropping the kindle fire. It just makes it soft and pretty to hold and the stand is greatly useful.

This listing is for the sewing pattern. The case is designed exclusively for the Kindle Fire. I will do more patterns sized for the ipad, nook, etc.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sized specifically to fit the Kindle Fire only. I do have more coming out for the other e-readers.
  • This does not fit the new Kindle Fire HD. There is a new pattern coming for that.


  • Cutting mat
  • Small rotary cutter (1" diameter)
  • craft knife
  • Quilters rulers (one that is at least 16" long and it needs to have 1/8" marks.)
  • Small, pointy scissors
  • Fray Check (found in the notions aisle of JoAnn's)
  • You will need a block of wood to stand-in for your Kindle Fire when you are ironing the cover. Time to meet your local wood worker! The block should be solid hardwood, not particle board, not treated. You will be ironing on it, so you don't want any chemicals or oils. The thickness needs to be: 11mm, the length: 19cm, and the width: 12cm. Edges all sanded to slightly round. You can buy one from me
  • Walking foot on your sewing machine
  • Steam iron and ironing board
  • Peltex 71F Ultra firm one-sided fusible, it comes 20 inches wide, you need to buy 3/8 of a yard (13.5 inches)
  • Dcor Bond single sided fusible heavy interfacing, 1/4 yard.
  • All one fabric, get 1/2 yard. If you want to use 4 different fabrics like I do, you can use fat quarters or scraps you already have. Cut 4 pieces of fabric total2 pieces are 15.5" wide by 8.5" tall and 2 pieces are 6.75" wide by 11" tall.

You Will Also Need:

  • Velcro5/8" or 3/4" wide, you need 4" long
  • Picture Framing Mat Boarda 5" by 7" piece. (Go to your local frame shop and ask for a scrap that came out of a 5x7 opening. I pay 40 cents each for these at my local shop.)
  • Heavy Needle Point Canvas also works if you want to make your case washable
