Amazon sold more than 4 million Kindles this holiday season, and there is a good chance you may have been one of those consumers. As with many new devices, there is usually no shortage of third party and homemade accessories to follow.
What does your Kindle case say about you? Do you like plain and boring things available to the masses, or would you rather have your own unique design? We found dozens of homemade cases we fell in love with, and thought we would share 10 of them with you. Some of these designs will include links to instructions on how to make your own. Hopefully you will get inspired and design your very own case. If you want your case to stand out from the crowd, than making your own is the way to go.
