Homemade Reader cover

Hi everybody!
Since it seems practically impossible to get a nice Sony Reader cover here in Europe (the m-edge cover was $28 shipping on a $15 cover ), I decided to make my own this weekend

I have some finishing up to do, but thought I'd share it with you

Yeah, it's made of old belts, and some felt
Link to larger images

Very pretty! Are the belts securing the Reader elastic?

Thank you . The bottom straps are not elastic, the top ones have a short elastic part sewn on closest to the cover (complete ripoff from the m-edge cover design )

Nice cover. Did you use something inside the cover to make it firm? Like needlepoint plastic canvas? That was what I was thinking of using.

Hmmm... wonder what the Ford dealer would charge me for one of those wallets?


Jed, your cover is amazing. I'd be tempted to try & do something similar except my sewing machine would never handle the thick denim fabrics.

Right now ? nothing, you might even get cash out of the deal but you'll pay sthing for the wallet though...

Well Bilbo, Solihull knows about cars now, don't you?

Seriously, I love the cover. I am going to gelt some felt tomorrow, he he he

Sorry, husband been sick all night, haven't slept, am writing crap, really. Note to self: should not post on mobileread when sleep deprived.

I meant you would not pay for a Ford Focus, they'd be happy to give it away. The wallet now... (does not sound funny anymore now, silly me)

Solihull (where Bilbo comes from) is a pilgrimage place for all Landrover fans. Ford - Landrover - ha ha . I am really really tired.

I meant you would not pay right no for a Ford Focus, they'd be happy to give it away. The wallet now... (does not sound funny anymore now, silly me)

No problem ace, your quote reminded me of the old joke:

Customer: Do you have a manual wallet for a Ford Focus?
Salesman: Seems like a fair swap!

Landrover factory is indeed in Solihull. I used to work right next to it.
