“Love it! Turn out great!”

Sew your own structured e-reader cover! The pattern is emailed as a PDF file. It includes 6 pages of step by step instructions with full color photographs and all pattern pieces.

This is an intermediate pattern. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I am more than happy to help if you get stuck!

The first pattern is for the Nook, kindle and kobo. You will cut on a separate line for each pattern.
The second pattern is for the ipad.

This cover features an outer zipper pocket for storing your earphones and your charger and several inner pockets for storing your reader, and other things you may want to keep track of. The velcro pocket is a perfect place to store gift cards and notes. **PLEASE NOTE: I do not recommend storing headphones in the inside velcro pouch as there is a risk of damage to the screen of your e-reader/tablet if it is left stored in the corners.
This cover is more structured than my padded e-reader cover as it contains template plastic. It is still soft and padded, though!

**Remember, DO NOT SCALE when you print. Your printer might tell you that "some clipping may occur"... ignore it. Keep scaling OFF!!**

Includes patterns for:
Nook, Nook Color, Nook Touch
Kindle, 2, 3, Kindle keyboard, Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch, Kindle wifi
Kobo, Kobo Touch
Ipad 1 and 2/3


Of course, you are more than welcome to sell (unlimited) covers that you make from this pattern and I would LOVE to see what you make! The pattern itself may not be duplicated and sold under any circumstances.

I have to agree with Whitney, I had some trouble following the instructions with this pattern. I did, in the end, get the project completed, but it took me a long time to figure out some of the instructions, particularly the last step in putting the whole thing together and sewing up the final seam was a bit of a challenge because of the thickness of the layers. I was very happy with the fact that the cover has pockets - 3 in all, including a zippered pocket. Overall, I was very happy with the results - I love the final product.

I found this pattern easy to follow. I loved that there were so many different sizes to choose from. I would rate this pattern for intermediates because it seems to assume a basic knowledge of sewing. I'd definitely buy another pattern from this author based on my experience with this one.

I really love the way my case came out! It is super useful for me with all the pockets to keep various papers, my checkbook, etc. I did struggle a bit with how it all came together, but by following the instructions carefully, it worked out well. I dindn't include the plastic to stiffen it, though, as I think it has enough padding to work the way I want it to. Great pattern!

I guess I'm not as smart as Poppy because I had many problems with the way the pattern was written. I found the instructions lacking in detail, the pattern pieces inadequately labeled, and measurements missing. Better pictures would have been helpful. There wasn't even a picture of the back or outer cover where the zippered pocket is. I figured it out eventually. However, I am replacing 2 of the triangles on the right side with elastic because I couldn't put the device in. The end result is nice and professional-looking and I commend the designer for having the talent and determination to design a complicated case having the 3 pockets and zippered compartment.

There are so many more features on this cover than others that I looked at, but the instructions made the construction relatively simple. Really nice to have the extra pockets and a zippered compartment (not hard to install at all!) and nicely lined. I made one for an iPad and one for the Kindle Fire as Mother's Day gifts and both fit very nicely.
