Pattern Description:

I use my tablet computer daily and carry it with me everywhere I go. I designed this Essential Tablet Cover to protect it while it travels in my handbag. Sometimes, I need to do things the old-fashioned way, so I made the cover accomodate a writing pad, and added pockets for the bits of paper I need to save: pay stubs, coupons, grocery lists, and receipts. The result: a tablet cover that works almost as hard as my tablet does! This cover is rigid and protective, but slim and fashionable--exactly what you've come to expect from a Bucklebee design. And it's so easy to sew! No tricky seams, no zippers, and the only hand sewing needed is for the button used as the closure! Twenty-two full-color photos walk you through every step, tutorial-style. Bucklebee Essential Tablet Cover is thoughtfully designed to be a beautiful accessory.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 9 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches. Closed, the cover is 3/4 inch deep.
  • The pattern includes instructions to alter the pattern to accomodate larger tablet computers


  • Medium-weight fabric such as canvas, denim, corduroy or ultrasuede
  • Quilt-weight fabrics for interior lining and pockets
  • Interfacings
  • Sewing machine, steam iron

You Will Also Need:

  • Hand sewing supplies for attaching button

I'm an avid sewer and quilter, but my first love is designing stylish, head-turning handbags. Bucklebee bags are known for eye-catching prints and fun fabric linings. Inside, custom-sized pockets and zipper pockets manage your essentials, so you stay organized and your handbag or wallet stays sleek. Bucklebee bags are designed to work as hard as you do, and have as much fun as you do, too!
