Do you have an E-reader? Because it is my new obsession. I can actually blame my current lack of crafts posts on my Nook. I guess reading is a good “new” hobby, right? Well, like any good nook owner I knew I needed a cover. I shopped around but didn’t find one that I loved. Then I found a DIY pattern on Etsy – yay. The pattern was very easy to follow. I have already made one for my sister too.
You can really add any sort of personal touch to your e-reader cover. My sister has a more classic style so hers is the navy one. And I wanted something more bold. The hardest part is picking out a button.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the “read” in fabric for the front of mine. I used Silhouette’s fabric interfacing and cut the fabric straight from the machine. How did I make the heart at the end of the word? Oh thanks for asking… I drew a heart and merged it into the end of the word in the Silhouette software. Then I just did a tight zig-zag stitch around the letters (not very perfectly).
Does any one have any must reads that I need to know about? I am reading Water for Elephants right now then I am going to read The Help. Since I am in my late twenties and just now taking up reading as a hobby I have some catching up to do…
