DIY Strap for Cover

I was thinking the other day that my Pocketbook 360 would be perfect if the back of the cover had a strap I could fit my hand through so it would stay firmly in place when I walked and read one-handed.

I tested lengths and places with a strap made from scotch tape and when I found the best length and placement I superglued a pretty burgundy ribbon on the back of the cover.

It makes using the reader so much better for me.

I just thought I would share my DIY in case anyone else missed having a strap.

you mean the strap is on the hard detachable cover? Would you please have a picture, I am not sure I have understood

I will post a picture when I get home. I put the detachable cover so the silver Pocketbook logo was facing up and placed the ribbon about an inch away from the logo.

ah, I think I get you, but if it is not too much trouble a picture would be great - and also size of tape and ribbon and position...

I have attached two pictures. The ribbon size and placement depends on the size of your hand. I would experiment with scotch taping the ribbon in different ways until you find the best fit and then permanently attaching the ribbon.
