PDF pattern instructions to make this beautiful yet simple to construct "Sara" case, padded, fully lined with zipper pocket closure, for your iPad or other tablet computers!

***This listing is for a SEWING PATTERN only, photos of finished items are examples only and are not included. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED BAG FOR SALE***

Super fast and simple construction. Great for gifts, boutique or sell your own creations on Etsy! Very simple, great for multiple gifts as you can stitch up a few in no time!

This cool square design gives extra space for multiple devices to fit, or put accessories (I put my countertop stand next to my iPad) inside the main pocket. Have a hard cover on your iPad? This case leaves room for the cover. I tested with a smart cover and a full keyboard hard case and both fit easily into this sleeve.

The pattern for this set of instructions will fit your iPad, iPad 2, 3, 4 iPad Air 1,2, iPad Pro 9.7 and most tablet computers; any device up to 9"w x 10"t x 1". 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.

If your device is a very different size, please take a look at my notebook computer pattern as it uses measurements to custom fit any device/cover.


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.

The square shape of this cover makes it great for quilt squares and balanced motifs. Look inside for a fun contrast lining...what fun print will your 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.

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.

I also offer sewing tips and brief tutorials on my blog at www.gailadesigns.blogspot.com

Questions or concerns about the pattern are welcome!
