PATTERN DETAILS

The Chloe case PDF pattern instructions to make this beautiful yet simple to construct case, padded, fully lined with zipper closure and removable shoulder strap for your eReader! After designing my first eReader case, I had requests for a case that would hold a device with a cover. I also wanted to add a shoulder strap to keep your hands free from carrying the device, or if it doesn't fit in your purse or tote, the strap makes it easy to carry. This larger sized sleeve will protect your device in style (covered or not) and may leave extra room for charger cord, a few dollars or any other small odds and ends! The inside is fully lined, all seams are enclosed in the finished case and it is fully padded to protect your device. The process is super simple with a professional finished result. ================================== Patterns by Gaila Designs ================================== This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print. I have been sewing for interiors for over 20 years and have attended numerous classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and lessen frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions. I also offer sewing tips and brief tutorials on my blog at www.gailadesigns.blogspot.com Questions or concerns about the pattern are welcome! ================================== Permissions for pattern use ================================== If you would like to use this pattern to create cases to sell online or elsewhere, that is permissable. Please include a note of credit for the pattern source and a link to my Craftsy store. Individual pieces sewn by you are wonderful, no mass production is permitted. This pattern is legally protected by copyright. Photocopying, electronic distriburion, publication, printing, posting online or reproducing any portion of the instructions, photographs, or pattern without permission is strictly prohibited. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY If you can sew a straight line, you can make this cover. Basic operation of your sewing machine is all that is required. If you have never installed a zipper, no problem! The method used is extremely easy. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Instructions are included to adjust the pattern for some of the new smaller eReader models. If your eReader is 8.1" x 5" x 1/2" OR SMALLER, this pattern will fit. This pattern will fit your iPad Mini! Just enough room to slip in a matching stand. Browse my shop for the Free Pattern for iPad Mini Stand! The pattern for this set of instructions will fit Kindle Fire, Nook Color, Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, Kobo Reader, or any 7" display tablet device up to 5" x 8" x 1/2". The case is slightly oversized, so it is designed to protect and enhance a device with a cover. With so many covers available it is impossible to anticipate every style and size of cover that might fit. The cover I tested is a folio style cover for a Nook. It measures 6" x 8 1/8" x 3/4" and was a snug fit. Very fitted covers slide in easily.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1/3 yard of fabric (consider pattern placement if fabric has a large, noticeable motif, may need more fabric. Consider direction of print. 1/3 yard assumes bag will be cut across the width of the fabric. To cut lengthwise, get 1 yard)
  • 1/3 yard of fabric for lining.
  • Batting, poly or cotton, 1 piece approx. 9" by 22" (heavier weight fabrics, lighter weight batting, lighter weight fabrics, heavier batting) Cotton batting is flatter, poly will be fluffier
