Nook Covers

Do you have an E-reader? Because it is my new obsession. I can actually blame my current lack of crafts posts on my Nook. I guess reading is a good “new” hobby, right? Well, like any good nook owner I knew I needed a cover. I shopped around but didn’t find one that I loved. Then I found a DIY pattern on Etsy – yay. The pattern was very easy to follow. I have already made one for my sister too.
 
You can really add any sort of personal touch to your e-reader cover. My sister has a more classic style so hers is the navy one. And I wanted something more bold. The hardest part is picking out a button.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the “read” in fabric for the front of mine. I used Silhouette’s fabric interfacing and cut the fabric straight from the machine. How did I make the heart at the end of the word? Oh thanks for asking… I drew a heart and merged it into the end of the word in the Silhouette software. Then I just did a tight zig-zag stitch around the letters (not very perfectly).
Does any one have any must reads that I need to know about? I am reading Water for Elephants right now then I am going to read The Help. Since I am in my late twenties and just now taking up reading as a hobby I have some catching up to do…

    They came out great. I really need to work on one for my daughter. Did you put anything inside the front part to make it sturdy? If you can let me know that would be great.

    Thanks,
    Jessica

    I love your cover! I am about to make one for my iPad. I might just have to copy your super cute one!
    I recently read Water for Elephants and the Help. Both were fabulous! Next for me is Sarah’s Key – I have heard great things!

    I don’t know if you’ve already read it or not, but “The Secret Life of Bees” is a great book as well, that I felt had a similar feeling to “The Help” which I also loved. The cover looks adorable!

    That looks so great! I want a Nook. Now I need one so I can make this cover – right?! I love reading. Without knowing what types of books interest you, some random favorites would include “A Prayer for Owen Meany”, “Time Traveler’s Wife”, also second the suggestion of “The Secret Life of Bees.” Some times I just want what I consider to be fluff – good stories, made a nice little message, but not earth-shattering literature. For that I love Megan Crane. I’d start with “English As a Second Language.” Also, the Percy Jackson series. They just get better all the way through. I know it’s juv. lit. , but it’s still good. Happy reading!

    Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my viewers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to shoot me an e mail.
