Books: not just for reading!

Several long weeks ago, my friend asked if I would make an e-reader case for him. Just a zipper pouch, something simple. While I’ve made some sketches and picked fabric, I haven’t done it yet. (Sorry, Jabe!)

But I did successfully make a case for my own Kindle!

I took a hard cover book I wasn’t planning on reading again, spray glued the pages together, and cut a Kindle-sized indent into it.

Looks like a book:

But surprise! It’s 300 books!

BEST OF ALL, I can leave it laying around in my car and don’t have to worry about someone breaking in to steal it :)
