Suggestions for Custom Cover

I'm thinking of getting a cover made for my PRS-505 and would like some input on design ideas that I should tell the crafts-lady...

I know that I definitely want it to be enclosed (being able to shut it quickly is important, to me) and I'm planning to keep my standard tan cover and just slip it into the new one for extra protection.

my player just broke and i've ordered a new one, so i'm very paranoid right now about keeping it safe! the stupid cover flopped open and my poor reader's screen went crashing down (apparently)....

Pictures and ideas are welcome!

The case will likely be in leather and apparently i've got a choice between lambskin, cowhide, buffalo or deerskin.
i have no idea what all these kinds of skins look like or which would be the best pick...
What do you think?

And what measurements do you think I should give her?

See my post in this thread about the At-A-Glance planner cover for my Sony 505 with Lightwedge. If I were making a custom cover, I'd use the AAG planner cover as a guide, maybe give it a little more depth and maybe add a felt flap or page to protect the Sony cover from the zipper pulls on the inside pockets.

I don't have experience with buffalo, but of the remaining three I prefer deerskin. Much softer than cowhide and 'tougher' than either cowhide or lambskin. If this is custom, you should be able to sample all the materials before making a decision.
