E-reader Cover Made Masculine

I love the cover I made yesterday for my e- reader, but I wanted to make another version for my dad.  I knew it needed to be very masculine if I want him to actually use it.  I think I accomplished that goal.

I used suiting material and essex linen.  I like the simple strap across the top, and I used french seams to keep everything tidy inside and out.  Two layers of fusible fleece provide the padding.  Now he'll be all set to read on the go.

Perfect for a Dad! I'm sure he'll love it.

They are both great! Might have to add an e-reader to my Christmas list so I have an excuse to make the cover.

This is perfection! I bought DH a Kindle for Xmas and I am definitely going to make one of these for him. I was worried about it being "manly" enough - but now my concerns are alleviated.
