You can make a case to fit your Kindle, IPad, Nook, Kobo, Nextbook or Nexus tablet. Instructions are also given to custom make a case if your tablet isn't listed here. Close it with a button or fabric closure. You can also use a plain fabric or make up stripes in your favorite colors. The case will protect your tablet from scratches if you carry it in your purse, and offer a small amount of padding if you drop it. (Unfortunately, the case won't protect your tablet from all damage.) MATERIALS: 2 Fat Quarters, contrasting or matching (or 2 of ? yard fabrics for 10" tablets such as IPad) Striped version - scraps of several fabrics plus 1 fat quarter for lining. Piece of batting, flannel or an extra piece of fabric for padding 1 - 1" button (optional) 3" elastic cord (available at sewing shops) (optional) A walking foot for your sewing machine is nice but optional. It keeps layers from shifting as you sew. A flexible tape measure is helpful, but any ruler will do.

I have been quilting for many, many years, and I still love creating beautiful things from fabric. I have been sewing since I was a child. My first sewing machine was a little hand-cranked toy which made a chain stitch. Then I had an electric one which had an on/off button. I finally graduated to a sewing machine with a foot pedal when I was 14. I started making my own clothes then. That was back in the days when fabric was inexpensive.
I started quilting as a means of keeping warm when I lived in a poorly heated house. Money was scarce, so I got old clothing from the thrift shop. I cut it up and sewed it into beautiful quilts. Gradually, the knitting, crochet, embroidery and macrame was pushed aside and quilting took over more and more of my spare time. I caught the bug and I was hooked.
I love cotton fabric. I love the different designs printed onto it. I have a large collection, probably more than I could ever use. I also love thread. Since I stopped buying so much fabric I now buy every beautiful spool of thread I see. Variegated thread is my favorite.
In my other life, I am a registered nurse working in a residential care plus emergency room facility in a very tiny town.
