So the main benefit of a tablet sleeve is, of course, to protect your tablet from dust
and accidental drops. And by sewing your own tablet sleeve instead of buying one,
you get to customize it to the specific size of your tablet and you get to choose
your own fabrics.
Sew your tablet sleeve with a flap or zipper closure to keep your device secure (so
that it won't slip out) or leave your sleeve open at the top for quick and easy access
to your device. Think about adding a pocket to your sleeve to hold a charger and
stylus and giving it a handle for easier carrying. And if you sew your tablet sleeve
with additional padding (there are several quilted designs on these pages) your
tablet will have even more protection. And one of these designs even converts into
its own tablet stand.
And a tablet sleeve can be a great first project for someone who's just learning how
to sew. The simpler designs consist of just a few rectangles of fabric sewn together
with a few straight seams. And if you sew your tablet sleeve from felt, it will be even
easier to sew because you won't have to finish any raw edges and you can sew your
sleeve wrong sides together.
A tablet sleeve can also be a great way to use up larger fabric scraps left over from
other projects. It can also be a great way to use larger pre-cut quilting fabrics like
fat quarters and layer cakes. And you can sew together smaller scraps of fabric in
patchwork fashion to make larger rectangles of fabric for your project. And a custom
tablet sleeve can also make a great gift!
