Freebie Friday! Tablet Sleeve


Zippered Tablet Sleeve

A few months ago I finally treated myself to a new tablet, which got me curious about designing a new tablet sleeve 😀 I’ve made them before but I wanted to see if I could do something more tight and compact, but still simple to put together. I really like the result with this one! It’s got some zipper shenanigans, but if you’re okay with that it goes together incredibly fast, probably under 1-2 hours. That’s why I made a whole stack!

They’re padded with quilt batting for extra protection. Mine are lined with polyester lining since that’s what I had on hand, but I bet flannel or fleece would be even better since it would pamper your tablet. The size I have is suited for a 7” tablet, though you could easily enlarge it for a bigger tablet if you know a bit about slashing and spreading.

  1. Hi ^^ I’ve got this polar fleece left over. Do you think I can use it instead of the batting ? ^^”

    • Yes, definitely! I’ve had good luck using fleece as padding ^-^

      • Okay, then I’m making it ^^ I’ll probably need to resize the pattern but that’s okay. Thank you ^^ I love this blog btw, and I’ve bought your Sewing Basics book to re-learn properly (I can sew, but badly xD), it’s great too ^^ (only problem is that the metric measurements aren’t always accurate, I always redo the conversions to be sure X_x)

      • That’s great! And thanks so much for buying my book too 😀 I’m glad it’s been able to help you!

  2. How hard should it be to pin the zipper around the curve? I tried it and it was hard!

    • It’s definitely not as easy as pinning fabric :/ Especially if your zipper teeth are really big and the zipper tape is narrow. Though clipping into the zipper tape will make it easier. You could also baste it with sewing glue or regular Elmer’s glue is a popular choice too 🙂

  3. Your fabrics are gorgeous! Where do you buy them from please?
