When I first received my Nook e-reader a few years ago, I made a cover for it. I rushed to finish it before leaving on a trip, and my assembly plan was a bit flawed, so it was functional, but not great.
Yet I still used it for almost three years.
I recently made this e-reader cover, and I'm in love!
|The front of the case, complete with functional pocket.|
The tutorial for it is available on Pellon's website as part of their Father's Day gift idea series. (Check out the other ideas that Pellon's designers have come up with--some fun and clever ideas!)
Because I was making this as a Father's Day gift idea, I wanted it to have a simple, classic look, so I modeled it on the idea of a leather portfolio (but with suede instead!) A zipper rather than a flap finishes it off.
I think it would make a great gift to give, but happily, my dad and husband don't have e-readers, and my father-in-law already has a cover, so guess what?! I'm keeping this for myself!
This case uses Peltex and fusible fleece for cushioning and protection, and the outside is three different colors of Mardi Gras 2 Roc-Suede that Roc-Lon sent me.
|Just simple piecing on the back--|
I wanted it to look like color blocking that is showing up in fashion lately.
Hope you enjoy the tutorial (and Father's Day)! I know I'm enjoying my new cover, and we'll be celebrating the dads in our family tomorrow. :)
