A Cover Conversion

What can possibly  be cuter than an Ereader cover with a pocket?

Recently, I made an e-reader case for my Asus tablet.  I used an adorable and practical pattern, designed by eamylove,   @ Amy Made That!  She has it available in her etsy shop and Craftsy shop!

The Pattern to make this Linen pocket Ereader cover  at Amy Made That !

My  Paris Pink and gray  Linen Pocket Ereader Cover                                  

The front pocket-   room for cords and more
 I showed my  tablet / ereader cover to a friend, and she fell in love with it immediately. (I could tell because she kept stroking it and looking at the front, and  then the back.)   She asked me if I could make one exactly like this for her, but with a long handle strap.   I said," Of course!"  I had just made the long adjustable across-the-body strap for my Two Zip Hipster, in this fabric, and knew it would work with a narrower width for this cover.

Side by side....  the Ereader Cover   and   the    Across-the-body  Pouch

 Gray (my pretend linen)  Quilters Linen  in stone  by Robert Kaufman
  Paris print       Amore Twill Sherbet  by  Premier Prints

 Dots   Ta Dot    by Michael Miller

I added a simple pocket in the inside


I added 2 rows of scrap Paris print to the back.... it reminded me of using cute fabrics with linen in a Zakka project 
Dots on the lining of the outer pocket
What a versatile pattern!!

 I would've been sad to give it up.... if I didn't have my own cover to keep!

I keep my tablet in the cover when I use it at home

This pattern is excellent, written in a  tutorial style with pictures, and is  easy to follow. It doesn't take a long time to make, and makes a great gift!
