eBook Cover-UP Uncovered!

Instead of purchasing the fancy schmancy expensive covers for Nook (although I am undeniably drawn to the hot pink/orange one), I made my own from stitchpaper scraps. I opted for the Industriell cover because it has little clips to hold the device in place, rather than elastic bands. So essentially you've got a hard book cover that you can REcover simply. I just made an uber simple folded cover that slips over the ends and topstitched it (same as the journal cover in Stitch Alchemy). I did line the inside so as not to scratch the Nook.

  1. Very cool---love the colors.
    I have wanted to try this technique...as soon as the *paying work* is off the table...sigh!
    I am a heart fiend, so naturally, this appealed!

    XXOO!!
