Cozy Reading

I got my mom a Nook last year as a combined birthday/Christmas gift. And while I’m not sure how much she actually uses it, I’ve tried to encourage her by getting her Barnes and Nobles gift cards or ebooks as gifts. But those can be kind of boring to open, so for her birthday a few weeks ago, I decided to make her a hot water bottle cozy to go with the ebooks, as in “curl up with a good book on a cold winter night.” I printed pictures of the books I was giving her and packaged them with the cover like this:

My first plan was to knit the water bottle cover, but I didn’t have time. Then I remembered I have a few felted wool sweaters, so I used one of those instead. My sweater was probably a bit too thick … it was a little hard to sew. But overall, it was a cute, fast project.

I followed the instructions at The Flying Quiche, except I added an opening at the back to make it easier to get the cover on and off.
