This picture tutorial is for a simple case to hold your new Kobo Touch eReader. This new reader is slightly smaller than the original Kobo. Since the screen is especially sensitive, I have an added inside pocket holds a firm material so it protects the screen. Of course, this is optional.
**If you have the original Kobo eReader with the click button, go here for the fabric requirements to make a cover.
Kobo Touch dimension - 6.5" x 4.5"
The directions for this cover will be slightly bigger by about 1/4"
- Cover Fabric - 15.5" x 8.5"
- Lining Fabric - 15.5" x 8.5"
- Thin Batting - 15.5" x 8.5"
- Inside Pocket Fabric - 9" x 9" (folded in half, wrong sides together)
- Prepared Binding - 40" strip or WOF (cut in two pieces....8.5" and the balance for outer binding)
- Fine Plastic Canvas: 4.5" x 6.5" (oops.. not shown in picture below)
|Assemble your fabrics. oops...Not shown is the plastic canvas|
|Layer the Top fabric, the batting, and the lining fabric and prepare to machine quilt.|
|Machine quilt with a simple all over pattern.|
|Trim this quilted sandwich to 14.5 inches by 7.5 inches|
|With, the lining side face up, add raw edge of the folded pocket fabric, and raw edge of the folded binding to the short side of the quilted sandwich.|
|Stitch down using scant quarter inch seam. Trim away excess binding and pocket fabric so it's all even with the quilted sandwich.|
|Iron the binding over and top stitch the short binding piece from the cover side.|
|The hidden pocket should still be to the lining side.|
|Fold up the bound edge 4-3/4" and pin sides down.|
|Stitch sides down with 1/8" inch seam to hold the fold firmly. Prepare to Bind.|
|Use your favourite binding method to add binding to the 3 raw edge sides.|
|Top Stitch your binding on the 3 sides.|
|Cut plastic canvas just slightly smaller than the pocket of the cover.|
|Turn the cover inside out, and slip the plastic canvas into the hidden pocket.|
|Turn the cover right side out, and Voila, you're done.|
