Well, we just finished our first crafty program for the year here a Riverside, and it went very well, if I do say so myself. One night I was doing my usual surfing of Pinterest, when I came across a pin on how to make your own eBook reader case. I really disliked the covers that I saw in the store for my Kindle, much less the ridiculous prices that were being charged. So I decided to make my own. The first one was my trial and error case, and it turned out pretty well, but there was room for improvement.
