“Gail is another designer that I will follow because her patterns are written well, the pictures are detailed, and the result is a professional-looking product. I like this one because it is roomy and could be used for carrying more than just a tablet. I put a chain shoulder strap on one, but a fabric strap would also look good. I used an extra-loft batting, thinking it might be a mistake, but the case turned out soft and to size. I think the case would also look nice with a quilted fabric or a pieced cover.”
The square shape of this cover makes it great for quilt squares and balanced motifs. The wristlet has a cute bow that makes it a fashion statement on its own! Clip it to either side, remove it, or make a shoulder strap for your case, whatever suits your mood. Look inside for a hot pink zebra lining...what will your surprize lining be? Making a gift and not sure which tablet your friend has? This square shape will hold the majority of standard tablet sizes currently available.
The design puts rings on both sides of the cover so you can attach the wristlet to either side, or attach a shoulder strap if desired.
This Pattern is designed to fit any device up to 10" x 7.5" x 1/2" including full sized tablets like the iPad 1, 2, 3 or 4, Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1", and more.This pattern is oversized to accommodate a device with a cover. Measure your covered device to see if it is the best fit with this pattern. With so many covers available it is impossible to anticipate every style and size of cover that might fit.
You can use this pattern to create a cover 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.
