I know I'm not the only one to reapropriate some old leather.



Are you working on your own DIY cover or case? Or maybe a frame?

Maybe you have some ideas but not sure how to start? Or maybe you already made one (:

Post'em if you got'em.

Thanks :)

It only took a few hours to do. While it's not protective like a hard-case, it'll keep the dust off it as a place to store. It feels nice in the hand, has a better grip than just the tablet alone and looks classy. The tablet slips in and out easily and the added moleskin elastic band helps the flap from flopping around.

Thanks jacobras!

I might make another one - book-style though - So I can prop it up.

My gf is knitting a custom sleeve for me, it will be similar to this one, in a slightly different colour.
