Romantic Kobo Kozy

I've had my brand new Kobo for a few weeks now and I haven't decorated it yet!

Wha?!!


Yesterday I fixed that right up by making this Romantic Kobo Kozy.

What makes it romantic you ask?

Well, it's common knowledge around here that although I hold an English degree, I actually prefer to read trashy romance novels. And what I love even more than reading the romance novels is the artwork on the covers of these books. A good artist can perfectly capture a scene of fantasy and lust. Love it!

So of course I needed to add a little bit of that spice to my Kobo Kozy. I used one of my favourite images from romance novel cover artist Alan Ayers. This one graced the cover of Johanna Lindsey's Captive of My Desires. Beautiful. Check out more awesome artwork on the Alan Ayers website.

That's the steamiest iron-on I've ever done. Makes for a gorgeous Kobo Kozy cover.


I used double sided quilted fabric for the Kozy so one side is black and the other side is romantic red. It closes with a big black button and some elastic.


I bet that's the sexiest Kobo Kozy you've ever seen!

I'm laughing because I have an English degree and I tend to read old sci-fi novellas! Why is it that everyone just assumes that if you have an English degree you must do nothing but read the classics over and over again?

I love your cozy! I have a store bought (gasp!) cover for my Kindle but I have often thought of making one too.

HAHA! Kindle cover with a romance novel on it! Those books get hidden under the bed at my house so as not to be made fun of.... shh! Don't tell anyone.
Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie! I can't wait to see what you have for next week!
