After having bought his e-book reader, of course he wanted something to protect it. So I made this:

I used the sturdy cardboard it came with, some batting, fabric, velcro, bias tape and elastics. The elastics were intended to hold the books, but making it still possible to navigate. However, it covers a bit of the screen, so a little less wide elastic would have been better. It was a pain to sew. I had to sew on the velcro before putting in the cardboard, and the whole thing is a bit crooked.
But he likes it  Smiley  It folds open and over completely, and it's fast to pack it closed. So very handy on the train. Grin

Quite ingenious!  It must have taken forever to figure out how to secure it without interfering with the buttons.

Out of curiosity, what sort of ebook reader is it?

Good job! I want to make one of these for my Nook. I saw on Etsy where someone used chip board for stability and foam to cushion. They used pleather along the spine to make it bend easily both ways. There was some nice dense foam that it came packed with and I got the chip board and fabric, so I just have to figure it out in my head. Oh, I guess I need some elastic too. Thanks for posting your creation. Gives me inspiration.

I would love to make a case for my Kindle, but can't come up with a good plan on how to do it.  Yours is really nice, your future husband is lucky!
