Pattern Description:

This is a GREAT beginner graph project! MOST of my testers never did a graph before this patter, The panels are only 21ST by 32 row, easy breezy!!! Or make the panels plain and add appliques, your choice!

My biggest problem with my nook was that it didn't FEEL like holding a book in my hands. Next I noticed, I was using it for patterns, for doctor's office self entertainment, and so many things where it would be SO convenient to just stick my license and check card in with the nook. But I never found a cover WITH a pocket that LATCHED AND protected the Nook from my clumsiness, so I made my own. Yes, I am aware there are quicker, thinner, simpler ways to construct this, but this pattern is done in layers in a thick yarn intentionally. To give myself the feeling of holding a book, and to protect the darn hundred dollar thing! So, here goes!

Excellent If you have an eReader, you need this cover!  April 24, 2013


This cover is terrific! It feels like you are holding an actual book in your hands instead of just another electronic device. I like that you can embellish it with whatever appliques you would like. That allows you the option to make one for EVERY person in your family! Color choices are also endless with this one.

Overview
In this economy, all around us there is need, sickness, and lost hope. SO, I decided to do something about it. It all began when my stepmother was diagnosed with stage 3a lung cancer and lost her hair to radiation therapy. We could not find anyone to help her obtain the wig she desired that ...
