Kindle Cover

For Mothers Day this year I bought my mom a Kindle.  It was what she wanted.  I hope she really likes it.  After I bought the Kindle I went on a quest to find her a cover for it.  All the covers in the store are over $30.  They are lighted and have stands etc..  My mom is really careful with electronics. We just had to get her a new cell phone because AT&T said hers would not work on their network anymore.  Her 8 year old phone that worked perfectly still looked brand new.  So, she doesn't need a case that its main purpose is to protect it she just needs one to store it in. 

I couldn't find one that I really liked so I started my search on the web to find a pattern.  I found several patterns and decided on one.  It was aweful.. just aweful... It was partially my fault for not reading through all the instructions before I started. There were many skipped steps.  Well... I finished it but I threw it aside and decided I could do better making one on my own. 

Here is what I came up with.  It is lined with wool felt.  I am pretty proud of it!  I will be glad to make up a pattern and instructions ( I will try to do a better job than what I found out there) if anyone is interested.

I haven't measured a nook but I will show you my measurements of the kindle and the instructions will be easily adjusted to fit your brand of e-reader.
