One little problem--I didn't have any good storage/travel solution for it. I still have the box, but one doesn't want to pack up the thing in a box every time one is finished, and for travel the box takes up a ton of space. Plus it isn't pretty. It's a box. They sell cases and covers for Nooks, but the $40 price tag on the ones I like seemed a touch steep.
So I made a Nook cozy.
It was very easy and inexpensive. All you need is:
A piece and a half of crafting felt
One skein embroidery floss and needle
I folded the piece of felt in half and cut it to form the main pocket, and then used the second piece to cut the flap and the pocket for the front. The whole thing it just blanket-stitched (link to how-to video) with the blanket-stitching used for the side seams and seams attaching the flap and pocket, and for a decorative binding on the closure flaps.
The pocket on the bottom is for the upload/charging cord and plug--I made the corner of the pocket open at the top to slip the plug in.
Back of cozy, showing the flap that closes the pocket
I suggest stitching the top seam of the pocket to the backside and the bottom seam of the flap to the frontside before sewing up the sides to form the pocket--I didn't, and it was kind of finicky to stitch through one layer only.
Is it a little odd to make something akin to grandma's tea cozy for one's sleek, modern e-reader? Yes, probably.
