Note: These directions are for the Kobo with the button that flips the pages... not the Kobo Touch. A picture tutorial to make an envelope case for the Kobo Touch can be found here.
You might have expected this. Today, hubby drove me to the store and took his Kobo to read in the car while I was in the store. We realized that we needed a carrying case. So, when we got home, I whipped this little case. See, I had made a case last year for a friend (hi Jill) and used the Moda Bakeshop Bookkeeper pattern. I really liked using the fun red colors and the chance to use the nice fancy stitches on my sewing machine.
But since this is my hubby's kobo, I used more masculine colors. I then measured and adjusted the pattern sizes for the Kobo. Too simple. Took me less than half an hour using scraps that were on my table.... (could this look similar to the church quilt I'm working on....ha ha).
Just in case you have a Kobo and want to make one, here are some details.
The size of fabric sandwich you need to start with is 14.5" x 9.5"
After quilting, trim down to 13.75" x 8.75"
Apply binding along one of the shorter edges
Fold this short side with the binding up about 4.25" to form the pocket for your Kobo.
Stitch the pocket sides about 1/8" to keep from shifting while binding.
Then starting at the bottom corner, add binding to three sides.
