Creating a cover for your e reader, FUN FUN FUN, Frugal frugal frugal!!!

I own a nook, LOVE LOVE LOVE my nook. I use it EVERYDAY!!! I saw those cute little covers in Barnes and noble and boy are they pricey, I am NOT gonna pay big bucks for something SEW easy to make, and quick too because TIME IS MONEY!!!!!

Here is the list of what you will need and I have uploaded videos to You tube to help you out, trust me its not hard, You can personalize it to make it your own and you can make them and give them as gifts. I show you the tutorial using a nook, but you can make them for any e reader.

Here are some supplies you will need
thin batting
Rotary cutter (optional)
x acto knife ( optional, but helps with cutting cardboard)
Sewing machine
tacky glue, or 007 bonding glue, or even white elmers glue
Vinyl for pocket.

Cut a large enough piece of cardboard, lay your e reader down on cardboard and cut the cardboard with an exacto knife, on the top and bottom of the nook. YOu want to make sure that you cut the piece so that it fits over the nook like a book cover jacket.

Once the cardboard is cut you can use this as a pattern to cut 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of batting.

cut 2 pieces of fabric, cut 1 of batting
Glue the batting on the side of the cardboard that is going to be the front and back of the
Now the sewing begins,
Take your 2 pieces of fabric- right sides together, and sew three sides, leaving the top open so that you can slide the padded cardboard into it.
Slip in your padded cardboard and closed up the edges of the raw edges, fold fabric down and
top stitch.
With you appropriate sized piece of vinyl you will want to sew 3 sides to the inside of the nook cover,
At this point you can choose to make a closure out of scrap fabric, or even use ribbon to make a tie closure.

Helping YOU discover YOUR crafting Gene!!
