This envelope case with a prop-up stand built right into the flap can be sewn to fit ANY tablet, and it's a quick afternoon project. I love my Kindle. It's the best thing ever. I can throw it into my big tote and take a library of books with me wherever I go. As a known introvert, one of my favorite activities is taking myself out to lunch with a good book. Before, when I got to the table and dug my Kindle out, I used to have to brush off all the crumbs and junk from my tote (I really should clean that out), then I'd have to figure out what to prop it on so I could read hands-free: the ketchup bottle, the sugar packet holder, maybe a napkin roll if the waiter left an extra one on the table. I needed an envelope case. And I needed a portable stand. I bet you do, too. Download the pattern now for step-by-step directions how to sew your own custom-fit case. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew with a zipper foot Insert a button hole SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The pattern includes Sewing Math so that you can measure your tablet and custom-fit the case to size.

Supplies Needed

  • Coordinating quilting-weight fabric for lining
