Happy Towel Day! Bonus Pattern: The Guide Tablet Case

Happy Towel Day all you hoopy froods out there!

One would hope you all know what I’m saying ^-~ But for those of you who don’t, I suppose I should let my nerd flag fly for a bit here. Today’s project is inspired by the book to rival all books: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. “The guide,” as written by the funny late author Douglas Adams in the achingly witty sci-fi novel of the same name, is an electronic book created by one of the great publishing houses of Ursa Minor, that can show you how to see the marvels of the universe for less than forty Altairan dollars a day.

That’s right, electronic books were thought of as early as 1979, and this project is a nod to the fact that the actual guide would probably be a lot like the Nooks, Kindles, and iPads we carry around today ^-^ I personally made this one to fit my Nook snugly, but I can see this case also fitting just about any other 7” tablets. Be sure to check the dimensions of your tablet to be sure, though.

  1. I plan to make one and then hint non stop that I need a tablet to fill it. lol. I just love how everything looks so complicated and way hard but you make all the patterns and instructions super simple for people like me! lol

  2. Love it! I just got a Kindle for my birthday in April. I saw this and had to download the Hitchhiker’s Guide omnibus 🙂 I can’t wait to make this case.
