Yesterday I got a new toy! A Sony 5" Reader! I love it! As is evidenced by the copious use of exclamation points. LOL. Of course with any now toy comes the need to find an attractive way to protect. I used all my birthday money on the reader so buying a fancy cover with a light was out. I love fabric though and have more then enough so I thought, why not? I can make my own.

Here is the result. It's a prototype I made using some of my new Momo Freebird layer cakes pieces. They were maybe a half inch to narrow on one side with 1/4 inch seams so next time I will cut to measure. I just had to make something with that particular fabric though LOL.

I think next time I will make the whole thing 1.4 inch wider all around and maybe just do the corners on all sides. This does hold the reader very secure though so we'll see. I will also embellish with some ruffles and maybe a yo-yo or 2. I just wanted to get my new baby protected. :)

What do you think?
