Tablet cover for me!

Thanks to black-friday specials and a very generous dad (thank you!!!!!) I desperately needed to sew a case for this cute little tablet computer. If you google kindle cover or ipad cover there are tons of tutorials and I picked this one because I wanted something I could leave on the tablet while I used it (opposed to the little pouch type which is also nice), plus I loved the way you could stand it up.

The tutorial is found here at chicaandjo.com. Instructions are included for customizing the pattern to any size device, which is just what I needed.

This is the first time I cut into my new Amy Butler Lark fabric which is just so delicious I want to save it all for myself.

My own little alterations to the pattern included pin fitting the bottom pocket to the device before I stitched the sides so it wouldn't gape.

And adding an extra piece of elastic at the top of the device to hold it in better. You probably wouldn't need this except that I made the bottom pocket tiny so it wouldn't hide the screen.

Oh, and now you see why I love the stand feature. This little baby will sit right in between my machines so I don't have to get up and look at the computer while I follow all the nifty blog tutorials out there ;).

And, since I have this odd habit of sewing in batches of 2 or 3, I made an extra one. I know just who to give it to and that's another name checked off my list (ho, ho, ho!).

Happy Christmas sewing!


  1. This is an awesome idea! I was just at Best Buy and they wanted $35 for theirs, and it wasn't cute...just boring and functional.

  2. WOW! What fun...especially for sewing!
