This nifty e-Reader cover is not only stylin’, but it also will cushion your favorite tech toy when you pop it into your bag for travel. Its clever design lets you adjust the size to suit your own device-phone or e-Reader or iPad (of course, every one of these devices is a different size). The simplest way to do this is to chain to the same width as your device-just hold the chain up to the bottom to size it. You want it to be snug enough to cushion it without letting it slide around. You’ll need a multiple of two stitches. (Interweave)
