This pattern is for an e-reader. I made it for my kindle fire and it fits as snug as a bug in a rug! The basketweave stitch allows for a nice padding around the kindle and the way it is completely open at one end allows for charging while the e-reader is in its case. I hope you enjoy making it as I did! And I enjoy using it even more! Have a Very Merry Christmas!
Update: Fits a Kindle Fire HD as well!
