Book light cover

Daughter Lucky is an avid reader.  She can spend hours in a bookstore drooling over books she wants to buy---kinda like me in a fabric store!  She asked me to make her a sleeve for her booklight.  This booklight is very cool.  It is called a Light Wedge. It comes in 2 sizes, paperback size and magazine size.  She has the paperback size.
It's not really smudgy; it's just reflecting the ceiling fan above.

Here it is in action. It lights up the entire page.
Edit:  for those who have asked, I bought this at Barnes and Noble book store but can also be found online at

Ta Da!

She asked that "I heart books" be incorporated into the quilting. Luckily, my machine can do this.

That's all for now.  Talk at you later!


  1. I heart fabric and books. I've never seen the light wedge. Cute cover. I think you could start selling these wherever Light Wedges are sold!

  2. Reading, my second love!! Such a cute case and choice of fabrics!

  3. Yes i need one of these, the one thing i have noticed with turning 40 a few years ago is that my eyesight is getting worse and i love to read as well, what a wonderful idea and your cover is so pretty. You are so clever.

  4. So happy I found you. I love your little book bag. I am not much of a reader but I love to listen to books on my IPod touch, love to download them from the library.
    Have to find one of those lights for my sister she would love it.

  5. Pretty and practical Rumi!! Love the embroidered motto.

  6. Great idea Rumi. I hadn't seen one of those book lights before.

  7. Great idea! I have not seen one of those lights before, pretty neat.
