DIY Quilted eReader Cover

I love my Kobo eReader. It's not fancy. It's not in color. It's doesn't have a touch-screen. It's incredibly basic. But I love it. I'm an avid reader (see my widget on the sidebar for what I'm reading right now). And I use my Kobo every single day.

I knew I needed a cover for it but I hadn't found anything that really liked. I wanted to sew something but for some reason or another, the project never made it to the top of my to-do list. Until last week.

I found this iPad Cover Tutorial from One Shabby Chick and I knew it was the one I wanted to make. I love that it has the velcro closure. Most of the patterns I found had a zipper or something fancy for the closure, and I'm too impatient (and not a good enough sewer) for that. Velcro was perfect.

I had all the necessary supplies on hand - and I got to use up (almost) the last of my Basic Grey Origins charm pack.

I quilted the rest of the squares together to make a solid piece of fabric for the outer layer and inner layer.

I love how it turned out. Here's the back...

The tutorial has easy-to-follow instructions - the only change I made was to make it a little larger than I needed so that I could fit my power cord and clip-on light into the pouch with the eReader (for easy travel). Thank you One Shabby Chick for the great pattern...
