A home for our Kobo

A couple of weeks ago we bought ourself a Kobo Mini. It's a very small e-reader. It was on sale. It's cute. It's perfect. Most of the time, we don't get too worked up about possessions. We like to think we're not that shallow. However, every so often we acquire a 'thing' that we develop an unusual attachment for ..... something we value because it's either extremely useful or extremely clever. Our Kobo Mini has quickly become of those things. We can access books from the public library and read them on it. No more getting the car out to drive to the library. What luxury!

We decided the only thing our Kobo Mini needed was a case to keep its screen from getting scratched. So, this morning, first thing, we set about making him a case. We used 2 rectangles of Dollar Store felt, and in less than a morning, we had this:

We made cut-outs for the top where you turn it on and for the bottom where you insert the cord to sync it to the laptop. We used one of our own polymer buttons and a bright hair elastic. It is perfect.


  1. Love it! I love my Kobo Mini too.
    Stay inspired!

  2. Sew Cute (sorry, couldn't help myself).
