Ruffled Tablet / Laptop Case

My husband and I got the same tablets and I made the same sized cases for them. His was from patches of his old army pants (so that they matched all of his other gear) so I had alot less material to work with. On mine I wanted a bigger pocket and some cuteness. Most of this tutorial will refer you to how I did his tablet case, but take a look at this one to get more ideas on how to embellish yours whether it be with a different pocket or the cute ruffled front.

Materials:
Outer Fabric- 2 10×14 Pieces, 2 10×5 Pieces
Outer Ruffle Fabric- 1 20×5 Piece
Lining Fabric- 2 10×14 Pieces
Padding (Fleece)- 4 10×14
Velcro- 12 inches
Zipper- 16 inches

Directions:

Pocket
The pocket will be made from one of the larger pieces of the outer fabric. Hem one of the longer sides of the pocket piece by folding it over twice and sewing. Then sew on the hook side of the velcro so that it is centered and at the top.
On the other piece of large outer fabric, about an inch from the top and centered, sew the loop side of the velcro. Velcro the pocket piece to it when finished.

Ruffles
As close to the edge as you can do a long, loose, straight stitch down each side of the fabric that will make your ruffles. Pull one of the strings on each side so that the fabric ruffles and move it so that the ruffles look about even and will cover a 10 inch height. Pin to the 10×5 piece of outer material so that they both face in. Sew together, just past the stitching that was used to make the ruffles. Do the same for the other 10×5 piece. When finished sewing all three pieces together, check to see if they are 14 inches long. If it is any wider, trim each side a little until it is a 10×14 piece.

The ruffled piece and the outer piece with the pocket on it are the two outer sides of your case. In the other tablet case tutorial you can skip to the sewing everything together section to finish. Be sure that the pocket is sewn in with everything too, because the sides on it will be finished along with the sides of the rest of the bag.

  1. I really like the laptop sleeve. I am an accountant and have my laptop or tablet with me almost all the time and I want to get something cute and stylish like this for both devices and I love these! Very cute!
