My dad asked me to make a case for the Nook he got for a surprise present for my mom. It was really cute — he slipped me a paper with the dimensions as I was dropping off the kids and whispered that he wanted me to make a case for it. But my parents share their email accounts, and my mom saw the shipping notification before my dad could delete it! Aw!

I used my favorite reader case tutorial to make this, and the fabric is one of the pieces I ordered to make my mom’s birthday present but had ended up not using. I realized after I had cut it that I should have fussy-cut the front. Whoops! I kind of like that Red Riding Hood is chasing the wolf this way, though. :} I didn’t put a button on the flap because my dad likes to rest his Kobo on his case while he reads, and I thought my mom might pick up that habit and then a button would get in the way.

I’m linking to Clover and Violet’s Summertime Adventures. Now both my parents have e-readers, but Mr. Yazoo and I don’t! I prefer real books, but I might like a tablet so I can play Kingdom Rush on it. ;> Cosmo would probably just steal it from me, though!
