Many of us who also own the Kindle 1 have used velco with the horrible cover that originally came with the device. I never has damage to my Kindle or my cover. It was not super industrial strength velcro, but the stick on squares which can be purchase almost anywhere.
As DG says, I would order a properly sized cover asap. I didn't take my K3 out of the house until my cover arrived.
