Off the Hook #2 - eReader Cover

I gave in and bought myself an eReader!  I'm not about to give up all my books or never buy another book again - my Kobo will never replace books -but it is so handy to pop in your bag and you get the instant gratification of buying a book and having it straight away (no more repeats of me waiting behind the door for the second Hunger Games book to come in the post).  Of course, when one gets a new gadget it needs a case and, being crafty, of course this had to be handmade. 

I used some left over wool from a bag I made (the wool came from B&M Bargains - £1.99 for a 100g ball in some delicious colours!) I crocheted ribbed squares in pink, purple and green, and then crocheted them togetehr in  grey in a patchwork pattern. I finished it with a button and loop fastening. 

I love my Kobo as I can get my instant book fix as well as being able to download my PDF patterns to it which is way more tidier than having lots of sheets of paper everywhere!  I have avoided buying craft books on it as it is black and white and I love the colours in these and think they are so important.
