Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You just need to know how to operate your sewing machine and follow instructions.
  • Every detail is explained.
  • Some parts are a little hard to do, but all totally doable for someone who wants the result.

Pattern Description:

Now you can make professional cover stands for the Google Nexus 7.
This cozy also functions as a stand for your Nexus 7, so you can watch a movie, read, or play games on a table top, hands free.

Your Nexus 7 remains functional while in this clever case. The camera takes photos clearly. There is an opening in the bottom for the charger and head phones to plug in. There is a right side opening to operate the power button and the volume control.

The screen cover folds back, you re-attach 1/2" of the velcro closure inside out, and voila, you have a stand!

This cover is not meant to protect against dropping the tablet. It just makes it soft and pretty to hold and the stand is greatly useful.

When you sell the cases you make from this pattern, please say "made from a StudioCherie pattern" in your listing.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Fits the Google Nexus 7


  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • 12" long quilters ruler
  • fray check
  • one piece of cardstock

  • small, 1/8" hole punch
  • You will need a block of wood to stand-in for your tablet when you are ironing the cov-er. The block should be solid hardwood, not particle board, not treated. You will be iron-ing on it, so you don't want any chemicals or oils. The thickness needs to be: 10mm, the length: 198.5mm, and the width: 120mm. Edges all sanded to slightly round. You can buy it from me, by email Cherie@StudioCherie.com

  • 1/3 yard All one fabric, or if you want to use 4 different fabrics like I do, you can use fat quarters or scraps you already have. I use quilting cottons. You can use a home d-cor cotton for the outer cover. Do not use heavier fabrics for the inside of the case.
