E-Reader or Tablet Case Tutorial

 Sewing Tutorial. E-Reader or Tablet Case. DIY Homemade Kindle Cover
 This little case has been serving the purpose quite well. I think you could easily use this template for a kindle cover as well – the kindle is about 1/4″ taller, so you may want to add a little bit to the length dimensions.



What you’ll need:
Two pieces for front and back in main fabric – 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″
Two pieces for contrast on front and back – 6 1/4″ x 2 3/4″
Two pieces of main fabric for top flap – 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Two lining pieces – 6 1/4″ x 8 1/2″
Two pieces of cotton quilt batting – 6 1/4″ x 8 1/2″
One piece of cotton quilt batting – 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
One piece of elastic – 8″


1) First, sew the contrasting pieces to the main body pieces, with wrong sides together. Press flat.


2) Place the cotton quilt batting on the backs of each of the pieces and quilt a few lines across to hold them together. You could use any kind of quilting pattern that you like if you want to switch things up.


3) Take the flap pieces, wrong sides together, with the quilt batting on the back, and stitch through all the layers around three sides. Trim the corners.


4) Turn the top flap right side out, pushing out the corners, and top stitch around the three sides. Press flat.


5) Place the elastic in between the front and back pieces, with the bottom end lined up with bottom of the piece. With right sides together, stitch around the three edges of the front and back pieces, catching the elastic in the seam. Stitch around the three sides of the lining pieces, leaving a small opening for turning. Trim the corners on both.


6) Insert the main piece into the lining, with right sides together. Slide the top flap piece in between the two layers on the back side. Pull the elastic piece so that it lines up with the top edge, making sure the flap is on top. Sew around the whole top of the case, capturing the top flap and the elastic in your seam.


7) Turn the whole thing right side out through the opening left in the lining.


8 ) Top stitch around the top of the case, and then down the three sides. Take care not to stitch over the elastic.


You can tuck the top flap in when you close it, or leave it out as you like. The elastic flips to the front to hold the ereader inside the case. And then you’re ready to read on the road!
