Project #3: Carrier for my eBook Reader

PB251788

Here’s something I worked on several weeks ago. It’s a leather pouch for my ebook reader. I named it my Kobo Karrier haha. I consider it a practice piece because the texture and thickness of the leather isn’t what I really wanted to use for it, but I haven’t found the time to go to Marikina yet to shop for leather hides.

I had difficulties sewing the seams for this piece, and mostly because I made measurement mistakes when I started the project. If there’s one thing I really need to get a handle on, it’s that. I need to be patient, measure twice, cut once. In any case, it worked out okay in the end.

I’m thinking of a smart cover as project #4, but perhaps I’m just going to redo this piece using the kind of leather I really like. The reader (together with its current smart cover)fits comfortably inside the pouch. I made a pen loop for it and an external pocket too.

It holds my mobile phone securely, but I wanted to use it to carry around a little notebook and my pen, for when I want to take notes while reading. 🙂 Overall, I enjoyed making this and I really learned a lot from it. I’m already looking forward to my next project.

  1. Wow, this is really nice. I have a Kindle too, and it bugs me when I can’t find covers for it. I do have a hard case, but nothing to put it in so I just tend to throw it in my bag. This sure would make an ebook reader look fancy. By any chance, do you release patterns? My partner is very much into leather crafting ☺️
