DVD Case =Touch Case

Hi All,

Received my Touch this afternoon!

Since I haven't managed to get hold a proper cover for my new Touch, I decided to make one out of a DVD case.(Someone posted this idea on one of the forum.)
Here are the pics:


I used the stickers to cover the plastic points that I removed from the case.


It fits pretty well.


Then I used a nice gift wrapper to insert into the outer cover.

You know nothing wrong with inovation... I like the look..
I was thinking of adding a clear screen to my Kobo Cover that I got from Chapters cause I think it would look good and show off the cover of the book I was reading.
Nice idea Joy


My thoughts..


regards

jack

Thanks Jack!
But I still need a proper sleeve to safeguard my Touch.This is just a temp solution. Chapters/Indigo do not shipped to Singapore so I'm waiting for US Borders.com to start selling covers/sleeves for the Kobo Touch before I could order one.

I don't know where you get your DVDs, but ours are round, and fit into an almost-square case, which does not resemble the one you picture.

What normally goes into your "DVD" case?

I had a dermapad case from my KO and KW the KT is a bit shorter but a couple of pieces of stickable velcro and it is held snugly in the dermapad case (from amazon) works really well at least until there are KT specific cases readily available.

Dermapad makes a folio case for the KO and KW it is leather and around 20.00 on amazon. If you put a bit of 3m Velcro on the back of the KT it is held securely in the case. Otherwise it would fall out because it is too short for the elastics to hold it in.

Most of our DVD are placed in rectangular shaped plastic cases. The one I bought is from Daiso, $2 store that sell cheap items. It's an empty case and I simply removed the parts that holds the DVD.

I did checked the ebay. One seller has the leather sleeves for Kobo Touch but only shipped to Canada & US. I found some clothed ones in Etsy.com but still preferred a leather one.

This will change over time. I bought my WiFi case on ebay some months ago. It shipped from Hong Kong and was available world-wide.

Does anyone have the Roots Kobo Touch sleeve? Sooty and I saw them in Chapters and they did seem to be a much tighter fit, than the original Kobo Roots sleeve was on either the Kobo OR the Kobo WiFi; almost TOO tight.

(And no... I did NOT try the Touch in the original Kobo Roots sleeve :P )

Hope so. Moleskine cover looks so good! Anyone own one for previous Kobo ereader? I was wondering if it's heavy. I really like holding it 'naked' but if they do come up one for Kobo Touch, I'll be tempted to get that.

yessssssss the new roots case was ridiculously tight. mine is fine now after some initial stretching and leaving it in the case, it's still a bit tight but a lot easier to get in and out from day one. the older roots case for the wifi fit much better and formed better to the kobo, but i have no problems now with the new sleeve. i'd much rather have the sleeve than the case though as i like to read a naked kobo.
