A couple weeks ago we were blessed to be able to travel to visit family in Arkansas. While there I realized that Mamaw’s Bettie’s birthday was just a few days away. Oops I totally forgot about that one! Brandon’s parents were planning on purchasing a Nook Reader for Mamaw Bettie’s birthday. I decided that our present would be a case for her Nook. Thankfully I just happened to have Kwik Sew 3924 along with me. 😉
The pattern that I used is made for a slightly larger reader so I did have to adjust the pattern. Mamaw Bettie’s Nook measured 5 X 6.5 so I adjusted the height of the pattern by shortening it 1 inch. This adjustment was absolutely perfect! Next time I may try shortening by only 7/8″ just to give a little wiggle room.
I was so pleased at how this cover turned out (much better than my first one). I had a little trouble adjusting the pattern the first time I made it as you can see in the picture below. My Kindle does not fit near as well as The Nook fits in Mamaw Bettie’s cover.
The only thing I would change about this pattern would be adding a small loop or section to attach a reading light. (My kindle does not have a light.) I also forgot to sew the fleece inside my cover so there really isn’t enough padding in my Kindle cover. I recommend using both fleece inside and a medium weight interfacing (sew in or fusible) for added stability.
Now if I only had more time in my life to sew one for all of my friends! ;) A great pattern I highly recommend. I also purchased McCall 6477 but after reading through the McCall instructions I decided to just stick with using Kwik Sew 3924.
