Marylyn's Tablet Cover

Marylyn has been busy making a cover for her new tablet.
The cover was made from left over pieces of Seminole Patchwork (American Indian Patchwork) that M.... had made into a table runner for her daughter-in-law. Other left over fat quarters that had also been used in the table runner were also used.
Firstly, the tablet was measured to determine the size. The cover had to be made larger so that the envelope shape could be made & the tablet would fit comfortably inside, making sure there was enough for the flap. 
The case was made flat, with the binding placed all the way around the edge. It was then folded like an envelope, making sure the pouch area fitted the tablet snuggly. The sides of the cover were then stitched down to keep them closed.
The flap is secured with a  button  and loop. The button matches  the blue in the fabric and the loop was sewn in when the binding was attached .
A nice little project made from scraps. Anyone wishing to learn how to make one of these, or even learn the art of Seminole Patchwork, might like to come & join our group. Our members are mostly experienced sewers with a wide range of knowledge, who wish to pass on their knowledge to the younger generation.

New, inexperienced members are always welcome.
