I hear the hot gift this past Christmas was the e-Reader. Even my husband and I received one from my parents. My husband, a Poetry-and-Technology nerd, was beyond excited. My first thought? ooooohhh!!! I get to make it a case! 🙂 Who’s the bigger dork between the two of us?
I made this one from more of that wool coat for the outside and gray fleece inside. Andy has already put an order in from something a little less warm for the summer time.
My sister and her husband also received an e-Reader from my parents, a Pandigital. I whipped up this sleeve for my brother-in-law for his birthday. Again, wool outside, but with a quilting cotton interior and a leather strap to secure the reader.
I don’t want to put a full tutorial up for these, because there are a plethora of e-Reader sleeve tutorials out there, but I thought I would share with my basic formula for how to decide size (especially if you don’t have the e-Reader in front of you when you are sewing).
The outside and lining are made up of 2 pieces of fabric each.
width = [eReader width + eReader thickness + (2 x seamallowance) + ease (the wiggle room)]
height = [eReader height + eReader thickness + (2 x seam allowance) + ease]
I recommend an ease of 1/2 – 1 inch.
