PDF pattern instructions to make this beautiful yet simple to construct case, padded, fully lined with zipper pocket and closure, and handles for your iPad, tablet, or Kindle DX!

***This listing is for a pattern only, photos of finished items are examples only and are not included***

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, iPad 2, new iPad, tablet, Kindle DX or any device up to 10.5" x 7.5" x 1/2". 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. The larger cover I tested is a bluetooth Keyboard style cover for iPad2. It measures 7.5” x 9.7” x1/2” and was a snug fit. Very fitted covers slide in easily.

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 third pattern variation was developed when I wanted a cover that would be side-loading so I could add handles to the case. I had also had requests for an extra, separate pocket to store accessories, such as a charger cord or stand. Here it is! The handles can be made from any pretty ribbon or belting to complement your fabric selection. They are long enough to slip easily over your wrist to keep your hands free when needed.

Supplies for the iPad, tablet, Kindle DX case:

1/2 yard of fabric (consider pattern placement if fabric has a large, noticeable motif, may need more fabric. Consider direction of print) Best to take pattern shopping.

1/2 yard of fabric for lining.

Batting, poly or cotton, 2 pieces approx. 11” by 16” (heavier weight fabrics, lighter weight batting; lighter weight fabrics, heavier batting) Cotton batting is flatter, poly will be fluffier.

2 - 14” zippers (longer is ok) in coordinating color (nylon coil) or 28” of zipper by the foot and two pulls.

2 – small tassel on a loop of cord

1 yard of 1 ½” Grosgrain ribbon for handles

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.
