I recently received the gift of a new Tablet, so I am currently learning all things Android. I was going away for the weekend, wanted to take the Tablet along, BUT the case/protective sleeve I ordered, had not yet arrived. I needed to make something quick!!!
This is what I made.Tablets and e-readers are not one standard size, so here is how I made mine, you can adapt this to your device.
I started with a piece of paper for the pattern and made it roughly 2.5 times the length of my gadget and 2 inches wider, this allows for the seam allowances and thickness.
My pattern is roughly 26"x 9" Remember I needed to get this made fast. I stitched a couple of contrasting fabrics together and then cut a rectangle slightly larger than my pattern. Next I cut a piece of fusible fleece the same size. Laid the fabric on top of the fleece, right side up and did a real quick all over, meandering stitch to quilt it.I then cut this to size, using my pattern (with the corners rounded off) I also cut a piece of cotton the same size and shape for the "lining". These 2 were placed right sides together and I stitched all the way around leaving just a small opening at the bottom so that I would be able to turn it right side out. Don't forget to clip those curves to get a nice smooth finish.
A little "belt loop" was added on the front where the flap would be tied down (and I could hang my stylus). The next step was to determine the depth of the tablet sleeve. I folded the fabric up to that amount and with right sides together, stitched the side seams (notice the seams are on the inside)
A long tie was attached and I was all set to go.
The case/sleeve that I ordered finally arrived and is made specifically for my device with openings that allow for access of the various ports, controls and camera, I did place my tablet in that one and now it all slips nicely into the quilted (not quite as boring) little case.
