vickiehowell Got twenty minutes? In the mood for a little Nookie? Well then, have I got the thing for you! No, not that kind of thing. Get your mind out of the gutter; sheesh! I’m talking about a project; a quick-to-sew sleeve for your Nook. A Nookie.

This quickie project is perfect for the busy, e-book connoisseur. You can whip one up for yourself, and your entire book club in no time flat which leaves plenty of time for the good stuff; reading.

Felt Nook Cover

Materials
1/4 yd. Wool Felt
Scrap Fabric, Patch or Other Applique
Coordinating Thread
Sewing Machine
Scissors
Pinking Shears (optional)

How-To
1.
Cut: 17″ x 6″ piece of felt, and desired size of fabric applique (I used a screen print of one of my doodles).

NOTE: If you’re making this cover for an e-Reader other than a Nook, measure width and add 1″; double length and add 1″.

2. Sew applique 1 1/2″-2″ down from top edge of felt piece. If you’re working with a thin fabric, it might be helpful to first, use an iron-on adhesive and then sew.

3. With wrong sides facing, fold felt piece in half lengthwise; sew sides, using 1/4″ seam allowance. Trim edges.

Hey, knitters! Get my Snookie (knitted Nook sleeve) patterns here.
