    E-Reader Quilted Cover and Bag

    I recently made an E-Reader cover for myself. I love, love, love Loralie designs and had this fabric along with the companion fabric. To protect the e-reader, I added plexiglass to the front and back inside each side. I didn't use a pattern. I quilted the fabric first then put it all together. Then after I finished, I needed a bag to carry it in to house all the cords. I can also put my iPod and iPhone in the bag. The first time I ever sewed in a zipper. Not the greatest zipper job, must work on that part more. Then I put some beads together for the zipper pull. I didn't like the seam showing on the inside, so I added binding around the seam. I just throw it in my tote and off to work I go everyday. I load my e-reader with audio books from the library to listen to while I'm quilting or knitting. I have to multitask as there are only 24 hrs. in a day.

    I made a cover, but more in the style of a pouch where the Kindle slips in, and stays in with velcro.. I pieced it..
    I love the way yours came out, and the fabric is great.

    I love it! I too made a pouch style for my SO's Nook. I still need to add the button on it. His is in a case and now he can slide the entire thing in the pouch for added protection. Love seeing how you did it - I never would have thought of plexi. I used a thick batting and flannel for the inside. I will post a pic soon. Thanks for sharing, Meghan

    You did an excellent job - I cant see any problem with the zipper at all. You could go into business!

    Vonda, this is an original and I didn't write anything down. It was fly by the seat of my pants.
