The square shape of this cover makes it great for quilt squares and balanced motifs. The wristlet has a cute bow that makes it a fashion statement on its own! Clip it to either side, remove it, or make a shoulder strap for your case, whatever suits your mood. Look inside for a bright pink lining...what will your surprize lining be? Making a gift and not sure which ereader your friend has? This square shape will hold the majority of standard ereader sizes currently available.

The pattern for this set of instructions will fit the iPad Mini, Kindle Fire 7" display models, Nook HD 7", Sony eReader, Kobe Reader, or any device up to 5.5" x 8" x 1/2". The case is slightly oversized, so it is designed to protect and enhance a device with a cover. With so many covers available it is impossible to anticipate every style and size of cover that might fit. The cover I tested is a folio style cover for a Nook. It measures 6” x 8 1/8” x ¾” and was a snug fit. Very fitted covers slide in easily.

You can use this pattern to create a cover with zipped pockets on both sides, or a cover with just the single zipper and no side pocket. Instructions will give the simple modifications.

If you have never installed a zipper, no problem! The method used is extremely easy. If you can sew a straight line, you can make this cover. The inside is fully lined, all seams are enclosed in the finished case and it is fully padded to protect your device. The process is super simple with a professional finished result.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.

I have been sewing for interiors for over 20 years and have attended numerous classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and lessen frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions or with limited instructions.

Questions or concerns about the pattern are welcome!
