I've been looking for a free pattern to make a carrying case for my Nook. The only patterns I have found are like a bag. Looking for something more book like that has a stiff front cover that opens opens then on the other side is a holder for the Nook.

Donna, I want to also add a pocket for the power cord and another for the ear buds. Here is one I just found.

Donna, here's a free pattern for a tablet  cover and stand. It'd have to be modified for the Nook. it'll give you an idea. I like this site for free stuff as well as patterns people have made and sell.

Good luck!

Thanks Roxana

Actually, this one is closer to what I am looking for...has a zipper to keep the dust out and a pocket for the power and/or ear-bud cord:

And note, this pattern is not free.  The one you referenced is, but it will not work for a Nook at all (Nooks cannot be read horizontally).

But, thanks everyone for searching.  I still think I will take the 'best ideas' of several patterns and draft my own.

Donna,

I want to make all of them and give them as gifts to family and friends. The book type is the one I originally was looking for, but the others are soooo cute! The fabrics make a big difference even when the using the same pattern. The pictures of covers that are posted on the internet are great, I took screen shots from many of them and have saved them on my computer for samples.

Thank-you ladies for your help with the linkds, they are all my favorites!

Donna, I'm trying to make travel cases for all eReaders. Can you give me the dimensions (Height, Width, and Depth) of the Nook?
Thanks,

My Nook (Christmas 2012 present ) measures 6 1/2" H x 4 7/8" W x 1/2" D...with rounded corners.  Here is a picture of mine:

Note, I added the decals so I could identify mine from my DH's and again Nooks are not readable horizontally.

I don't know if there are different sizes.  All of them in our family are all the same.

Hi 

If you haven't decided on a pattern for a Nook cover you might try the embroidery library site go to their bookmarks and reading section they have an e-reader case pattern that is free and in the directions they give the dimensions for most if not all the e-readers also urban threads has an e-reader case as well. The embroidery library site has many great projects with free patterns and great directions. You may have to sign up for the site but it is free.

Donna,

your decals are really cute. I decorate mine too. I have three Nooks. The original, the Simple Touch (like yours) and my in-laws gave me the Nook HD+ for Christmas last year. I use all three. Pat made me a case with a little pocket inside for my stylus but it's only a carrying case not like you're wanting to make.

Here is a link to the free ereader pattern. You may need to register to get the pattern. They have a list of readers and their sizes. They have some beautifull free embroideries. Yum!
