Would Your Mummy Like a Zombie Puppy eReader Case?

Zombie puppy ereader coverOne of the saddest things about eReaders is their lack of personality. Once upon a time, when you spied someone on the plane, train, or bus reading a novel, you could get an inside look at their taste. But now, all books look the same. No cracked and crumbling font on the spine, no blazing inferno on the cover lets others know you’re a fan of all things spooky.

However, there’s no reason to leave your zombie fandom out of the eBook experience! This (very imperfectly crocheted) cover will fit a Kindle 3 Keypad or any of the smaller readers. (It will fit the Kindle Fire tightly, but the Nook Color is too big.) 

Of course, the envelope shape lends this piece to more uses as well...perhaps you could keep your love letters from the Undead inside, or any other treasure you wish to keep away from prying eyes.

WARNING: This is a crocheted piece made of wool with buttons. IT IS DECORATIVE, NOT PROTECTIVE. Sharp items in your bag will still poke through to your eReader and while it has some cushioning, it won’t protect your eReader if you drop it. We take no responsibility for the safety of your device.

Mother’s Day is coming...and we’ll be drawing the winner’s name in time for you to tell her whether she’s getting something really special...

LOL! So glad you like it, Deborah. I dropped a stitch at one point, so the flap looks a bit as if it has a bite taken out of it, but that's life.

Thanks, Luckee! The dog pattern comes from a book called Zombie Felties. There's some really adorable stuff in there. I recommend it. The projects are easy enough to do with a coordinated youngster.
