Kindle eReader (2, 3, touch or paperwite) or Nook eReader (touch or glowlight) or Tablet Sleeve Cover

Pintrest



This information is provided in association with our YouTube video at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L8BhcBNzhg. Please watch the video for full instructions on how to make the eReader/Tablet sleeve.

Below are dimensions for some of the popular eReaders.  You can make this sleeve for ANY eReader or Tablet.  You just need to adjust the measurements of the pieces

Kindle Cover
  • Kindle 2 Dimensions – 5.3” x 8" x .36”
  • Kindle 3 Dimensions – 4.8" x 7.5” x .335”
  • Kindle Touch Dimensions – 4.5" x 6.5” x .34”
  • Kindle Paperwhite – 4.6” x 6.6” x .4”
  • Nook Touch – 5" x 6.5” x .47”
  • Nook Glowlight – 5" x 6.5” x .42”

So, taking the Kindle Paperwhite dimensions of 4.6" x 6.6" x .4" as a sample.  You would add the .4" to both the height and width which gives you 5" x 7".  Next, you will round these numbers to the nearest inch or half inch.  My numbers are even, so I don't need to round them.  This gives me 5" x 7".  We now need to add 1" to each direction to leave enough room for the 1/4" seam allowance and some extra ease so the eReader will fit.  So, my final cutting size for the front and back pieces is 6" x 8".  See the table below...

If you cannot figure out the cutting sizes, please post a comment in the YouTube video comments with your device dimensions and I can give you the suggested cutting sizes.
