Pattern Review - Padded e-reader Cover by Birdiful Stitches

When Melissa confirmed that we'd be making covers, I knew immediately what pattern I would be using! I first used it to make this cover as a gift and both myself and the recipient were pleased.

This is the Padded e-reader Cover from Birdiful Stitches.

This is a very easy to follow pattern that provides pattern pieces for Kindle, nook, i-pad and Koob. It's also a quick sew and can be made from a small amount of fabric.
 The PDF pattern provides clear, step-by-step instructions with photographs.

The cover is padded either by the use of a hidden layer of batting or fleece. It provides corner pockets on one side to snuggly hold your e-reader in place.
 The opposite side provides additional pockets for storage. Options for 1 large and 2 small pockets included in the pattern. The small pockets are the perfect size for business or debit/credit cards and the large could hold a small notebook or journal nicely.
 It has a button closure that allows you to add a little extra touch to your cover. Instructions are included for making a bias tape closure, but here I have used a small piece of coordinating fold-over elastic to customize the fit to whatever is put inside.

They truly are quick and actually quiet satisfying to make....here are several others I made at the same time.
I didn't have an e-reader to "model" for you, but I think it holds my planner quite nicely! :)

Great review! I think that the hardest thing is going to be deciding what pattern to use :)

Love the circle fabric, Kristy!!! These would make great gifts for the males in the family who are so hard to think of presents for.
