Fantastic! They're great looking, useful, and they hide your secrets!  Smiley  I adore that you made one (a beautiful one!) for a fellow rider  Smiley

added: THANK YOU for sharing the tutorial, your instructions and the pictures are very clear and I can't wait to make one!!!

I finally made one.  I love this fabric.  The next time I make one I'll put add a bookmark and closure to it.

Tute tute tute tute tute!!! Pleeeeeeeeze!!!!   Cry  Kiss

Are these anything like the paper ones we used to make out of paper bags?  I could use this, I hate my books getting mangled, but I love to always have a good book with me!

Great job! They're very cute.
I think I had that same planet fabric at one point, when I was just beginning to sew.  Cheesy

Wow I love this....I agree with everyone above...I don't like everyone being able to see what I am reading, especially when I am reading somewhere on campus waiting in between classes. No one needs to know if I am reading," History of the British Empire" or " The Lady's Desire "

I used to catch all kinds of flak for reading historical romances and such... so one of these would be nice....I mean come on everyone needs a break from real reading every now and again.
