no-sew kindle (re)cover

I can't really call this a Kindle cover because the essence of it (the cover itself) was purchased on clearance at Target. I picked it up on a whim because I didn't have one and it was only $9. Score. 

But it looked like this and was just a little bland for my taste:

The night before my trip back to NC, I decided that it was time to spruce it up. You mean you don't make decisions to do a little crafting at 10pm the night before a big trip? That's odd.

So how do you cover a Kindle when you're impatient and short on time?

Heat-n-Bond, baby.

I used two fabrics, just because I couldn't decide which one I wanted to use. I ironed on a green floral first and then cut the other print a little bit smaller to stick on top so there would be a border. I just cut the fabric + heat-n-bond to size and then ironed it right on. And I used a low setting because I wasn't sure how the leather would do under the heat, but it worked well. Now I have a cutie little Kindle cover.
