Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know basic sewing skills.

Pattern Description:

I was inspired to make this Reader Seater because more often than not, I'm sitting in my bed late at night either reading or cruising blogs, or even catching a movie, on my reader.

Normally, that late is at night when I'm tired and my hands get very uncomfortable hanging on to the reader. I do have one of those fancy cases that fold into a sort of tripod stand, but then there's the question of stability if I move the slightest bit.

Enter the Reader Seater ... cushy but stable ... and better yet, hands free!

Necessity is the mother of invention I hear ... or in this case ... read!
