This E-Reader sleeve will fit any full sized Kindle or Nook Color/Tablet, or in fact, any e-reader measuring approximately 8″ by 5″ by 0.5″. The pattern was later updated to make a Nook Simple Touch or E-Reader / Tablet Sleeve measuring approximately 6.5″ by 5″. You can get the details for that size too. But it’s a simple design which you can easily change up to make a tablet or e-reader sleeve in any size you need.

A tip for you – make one side of the lining in felt (the side that touches the screen) and you can use that to give the screen a little bit of a clean as it goes in and out of the case, to remove some of the finger prints from the screen.
