Just today I purchased a Kobo e-reader from Borders ($40 off, yay!) and promptly purchased BirdifulStitches' ever popular cover pattern to encase it in!  It was easy and great fun to make Smiley  I did change it a bit- I put batting against the inside and outside fabrics, and I put a cut down piece of extremely heavy duty interfacing in the very center of both sides, to give it more shape.  That way when it gets beaten by things in my bag I don't have to worry about it as much.

I saw this fabric in November? and had to have it....love the irritated-looking orange dude Smiley  The button is a cover button made to match the inside.

The inside!  These fabrics had been purchased for a friend's quilt...but I have so many for that project now I don't feel terribly guilty using them Wink  The decorative stitching on the large pocket is obvious, there's a leaf pattern also on the small pocket-

which this non-flash picture kind of shows.

I'm so excited to start carrying it everywhere in style, and safely!

Looks great! Love the owls!
And I like adding the support as my stuff gets pretty roughed up, too; I'll have to remember that idea.
I snitch my husband's e-reader all the time so I should probably make something to keep it safe! 
Thanks for sharing.
