Not being one for wanting to hide my Prime away, I did want to be able to protect it if it's loose in a bag. I thought a microfibre cloth would be ideal, so bought a microfibre dog towel from Tesco (40x60cm)

Folded 3 times, stitched along each long end, and along the short end then turned inside out. (I didn't sew it myself, but only because I was too lazy to find my sewing machine in the loft!). Cost - £3.50, plus a meal for the sewing

It's best to err on the side of being slightly tight rather than loose, since the fabric will probably stretch a little in the first few days.

Neoprene from a wetsuit would be even better & what I plan to make as I have made them many times in the past as they absorb more shock & pressure

Nice job

Use the microfiber to line the neoprene

I like £3.50 DIY projects! How do you close it? Just by folding it?

Haha! awesome. I did the same DIY several weeks ago but by hand (so looks worse) jejejeje.

The next step would be to use a suede-like fabric, and create a small sleeve that would look tip top.

Yes. The open end just folds over - it's about 1/2 the length of the prime extra. Long enough to tuck under neatly if it's on a table, and long enough to stay in place in a bag, I hope.

It looks like a pillow. I would sit on it. Be careful if you leave it on your couch.
