My new e-reader is treating me well, friends. And it makes me feel like rhyming. A book! A book on my Nook! Look!
(You can ignore me. I may have been up until 12:30 last night finishing the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on my e-reader.)
(Which, by the way, is a crazy book. Good. But crazy. And graphic. Have you read it?)
Because I’m still in my height of glory about my new Barnes & Noble Nook that I won, here’s another e-reader post for you.
I knew I wanted some sort of protection from scratches and dust to keep from destroying my new reader when it’s traveling in my purse. Unfortunately, my choice from B&N was $125. What can I say? I have good taste and I like the Kate Spade cover best.
Instead of settling for a different case and forking over $30 or $40, I figured I’d dig into my fabric stash and try to make something on my own.
I put together a really simple pocket for my Nook in some coordinating fabrics I had in my stash.
It’s the very last of my pretty paisley fabric. I’ve made two lunch bags and this case from it. I’ll miss you, old friend.
I think I’m going to try a flap front for the next one that I can open like a book. I’ll let you know how that goes. Until then, I’ll be using this to carry books in my Nook. Look!
While I think this is pretty self-explanatory and it’s a simple project, I’ll be making another one for a friend soon and would be happy to post a step-by-step tutorial for it in the future. Let me know if this would be helpful.
What do you think?
