A DIY eReader cover that looks like a hard-back book! The design can be adapted for tablets :)

The covers available for purchase for eReaders and the like are all a bit blah, and rather $pendy. So I rolled my own, and now you can too!

This eReader cover was made for a SONY PRST2.

Step 1:

Stuff you will need:
- Sheet of rigid cardboard or thin masonite (~ A4 size)
- Fabric suitable for outer cover (~ A4 size)
- Paper for inner (~ A4 size)
- Approximately 60cm of thin flat elastic (~ 5mm width)
- Cutting tools
- PVA glue
- Measuring tools
- Marking tools
- Small eyelets, punch and setter, hammer (n=8 eyelets)
- Your chosen device. 

Step 3:

Cut fabric for outer cover.

The pieces of board will be glued to this with about 2mm of space between them (to allow for folding closed). The fabric needs to be 15mm larger than this all round.

Here I have used a blockout-lined curtain fabric. It was left over from a curtain making adventure and thus, free :)
Use just about any fabric you like, heavier is generally better.
