Here is a rather bad picture of my first attempt at making my own NOOK cover. The Sound and the Fury by Faulkner hasn’t held up very well but I didn’t expect it to since it was a slapdash job. When my sister gave me the NOOK Tablet as a gift at first I balked. I hemmed and hawed. I resisted the lure but quickly overcame my reservations. I’m not against eBooks but if you saw the teeming bookshelves you just might shudder (okay it really isn’t that bad).
So I Googled it and followed a post on Instructables that I posted to my crafty Pinterest board to make my first attempt. The only thing I did different from her easy steps was the way I glued my straps on… which in hindsight didn’t make much difference.
Next attempt will include reinforcing the spine and I’m debating following this poster’s idea to use sugru. But it looks like a much bigger project so I might go the nonbook route and making a sleeve.
I’ve bought more books since I got the NOOK even if you don’t count all the books I’ve bought to hack into pieces and turn into my own cover.
Have you made your own tablet/iPad/NOOK/etc cover?
Let me know I love seeing the craftiness.
