For my birthday, Mike suprised me with a Nook Color! It was completely out of the blue and unexpected. I was pretty content with reading books on my iPhone, but he thought I needed an e-reader.
(Ignore the dog, the grill and the mess in that picture. It's really hard to take a picture of a Nook. They are very reflective.)
I decided that it definitely needs a cover, so that I don't immediately scratch it up, and found this terrific free tutorial online.
I choose to use a hair elastic for the closure instead of a piece of twine, and I used fusible fleece for the batting, but only because that's what I had. In hindsight, I wish I'd done a double layer.
I made the case about 1/2" longer than directed, as she indicated that the reader in the picture was slightly smaller.
The Stand has some competition now.
Stay tuned for The Nook Color, part two: my thoughts on the Nook itself.
