i loved these suggestions of tutorials for making my own Kindle cover. I did notice however in the descriptions, that "peace or peaces of fabric" is used. As an avid reader and lover of words and spelling, it made me cringe to see an incorrect spelling of what was obviously meant to be "piece/pieces"..Spelling is important, it really is. Beyond that, I'll be using a couple of these suggestions and make myself a truly one of a kind Kindle cover. Thanks for taking your time to compile the list. :)

I know this is an old post, but I just couldn't let this pass without commenting. I am so tired of seeing people making comments about another poster's spelling, while they have glaring grammatical errors in their own posts. It just made me "cringe" that you did not encase "however" in commas, as it is an interrupter in this instance, and instead chose to put one unnecessarily before "that."

Next: "Spelling is important, it really is." This is a run-on sentence and requires a period, as there are two independent clauses.

You're right. Spelling is important. Grammar and punctuation are also important as well. Kindness is the best choice, however.
