A couple of weeks ago I bought a new toy...
Hello, Nook! (Nook needs a better name, because NOOKY is dumb). Aaron bought one a month before me and I got all wanty. I put some stickers on mine to tell them apart. Well, let's be real, I would have done that anyway...
I wanted a little sleeve to keep it in when I throw it in my bag. This is attempt #1. There WILL be others, because I'm not sure this works.
At first I thought it was a total FAIL, but now it's a ...maybe fail? Mediocre first draft?
I spent about a half hour (possibly less - late Sunday morning pre-church crafting here - oh wait, maybe that's my problem! ;) and used fabrics I had on hand (houndstooth outer, velvet inner, scraps from my applique scrap box) and this as inspiration for the pattern. But don't click that because in comparison mine will look really dumb. ;)
The velvet is a little bunchy at the bottom, and at first it was a bit too snug of a fit, but it's getting better now. It works. And I totally use it because I take this thing everywhere. LOVE. I had no idea I'd like an eReader. But this is pretty sweet. And the best part is that I can check library books out on it.
No, wait, the best part is that I put some of my own photos on as a screensaver instead of goofy caricatures of authors. Heckyeah.
BTW, you can always see what I'm reading on my Goodreads page.
BTW2, I ultimately chose the Nook over the Nook color because of the e-ink. It rocks.
And now the girl wants one for Christmas. Sheesh. Don't know about that...
