“Just made this bag. Love it easy instructions to follow lots of pictures can put both my e reader in one pocket and my nook inside other pocket no problem Wish I had used a bigger zipper though.”
Super fast and simple construction. Great for gifts, boutique or sell your own creations on Etsy!
The pattern for this set of instructions will fit your iPad mini, and other small tablet computers of a similar size. If your device is larger than 8" x 6" x 1/2", check my shop for Kindle, Nook, laptops and full sized tablets and ipad patterns in the same design! This pattern is a little oversized to accommodate a device with a cover. With so many covers available it is impossible to anticipate every style and size of cover that might fit. Very fitted covers slide in easily.
You can use this pattern to create a case with zipped pockets on both sides, or a cover with just the single zipper and no side pocket. Instructions will give the simple modifications.
If you have never installed a zipper, no problem! The method used is extremely easy. If you can sew a straight line, you can make this cover. The inside is fully lined, all seams are enclosed in the finished case and it is fully padded to protect your device. The process is super simple with a professional finished result.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.
I have been sewing for interiors for over 20 years and have attended numerous classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and lessen frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions or with limited instructions.
