DIY: tablet device case

For Christmas the hubby got me a Kindle. It was by request, even though I've been in the 'I prefer real books' camp for a long time, I finally gave in, because I realised I read a book once and then it just lies in the house, never to be read again, until I decide to give it to the charity shop. So as I am trying to declutter, realisation dawned that perhaps a Kindle was the way forward. Plus, it's a lot easier to carry around in your bag when getting the train, which is often when I read the most.

So far, I'm loving it, but straight away realised I needed a little case for it to keep it protected when I am carrying it around, so of course, I decided I'd have a go at making one!

Craft DIY project for making a fabric case for a tablet device. I've actually shared the tutorial for this little quilted number over on the AO at Home blog, so you'll need to pop over there for the full project, but just so you know, it's not just for Kindle, you can easier adapt it to fit your iPad or Samsung Galaxy or whatever device you have!

What do you think? I'm quite pleased with my Liberty-esque fabric which I found in my local Fabricland. ;)

  1. Aw, it's gorgeous! I think I may have a go at one of those beauties! And I'm with you on the kindle thing... I was definitely in the 'real book' camp until I was bought a kindle as a surprise. Now I absolutely love it! x

  2. I love this and especially the pretty fabric you chose - Fabric Land can be such a winner sometimes. I'd definitely like to give this a go sometime. Leanne x

  3. Thanks for this, I've been meaning to make a case for my tablet for ages! enjoy your weekend x

  4. I absolutely love the way these retro appliances look! Wonderful colors! Growing up, ours were harvest gold. I don't really like the stainless steel, but I think it's really popular right now.color decorating-ideas
