I'm baaa-aaaack!! Kari, here again, from That's-Sew-Kari with a little bit of self-care sewing for my tablet. I have been meaning to sew a tablet case for a while now - it seems my original faux-leather case I purchased has a few tears where tiny fingers have picked at it over the years. When I saw the opportunity to review the Emma iPad/Kindle DX Cover from Gaila Designs, I knew I had to find some time in my busy schedule.

to hold some money, charger, or anything else you may need.

Including embroidery time, Facebook breaks, and snack break, it was done under 2 hours! I did find trying to keep all of the layers from shifting a bit more difficult than I anticipated. I recommend using lots of pins. That being said, it won't deter me from making another. I absolutely love how it turned out -- I even took it to the doctor's office today and my tablet was in a stylish, one-of-a-kind (yet safe) case.
With the exception of the yellow zippers, this was a result of me digging through my stash again. Black and white is by far my favorite color combo. When I saw the yellow zippers, I knew they were just the pop of color I was looking for. I thought I had leftover batting, but when I went into my supplies, it was just scraps. I did find a perfectly awesome bath towel though that I used a bit of to make burp cloths last year (shhh... don't tell). I also decided not to use grosgrain ribbon for the handles and opted to sew my own with matching fabric.
I will most definitely be sewing up some more of these! And my 3 year old loved it as well -- I found her hiding in her room with it as she was quickly filling it with goodies. She may have thrown a tantrum when I told her it was mine. Poor girl isn't used to my self-care sewing just yet.

If you don't have a tablet already for viewing your PDF patterns, I highly recommend Kindle by Amazon. We have 2 in our household and LOVE them! You can get the "old" 7" HD Kindle Fire for just $139, or if you're one that likes the newest and best of everything, you can get the newest version the Kindle Fire 7" HDX for more.
