Today we’ll finish the Tablet Cover, and have another Giveaway. I hope you are enjoying the projects for Autumn Jubilee! Share your progress and finished projects on the Facebook Autumn Jubilee Sharing group. You can also upload your photos to our Flickr group Autumn Jubilee.
Using the last two layer cakes, cut strips 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 inches wide, as is your preference for binding. I used two more prints in the same colors, sewing the strips end to end alternating the prints.
Fold in half lengthwise and press. Sew to the right side. I have a multi-part tutorial on Binding, to show exactly how to do the corners with tips on getting those perfect miters, joining the ends and finishing. Since we are using straight of grain binding this time, start with Part 2 Here.
Finish stitching the binding, either by hand or machine.
Press the completed piece to sharpen up the corners and crisp the quilting.
Add 4-inch velcro strips to the inside of the rounded end, and the outside of the opposite end about 1 inch from the end edge. Put the soft side on the rounded edge so it won’t scratch the tablet. Center both from the side edges. Top stitch in place.
Fold the base up from the bottom 10-1/2-inches, this should be right at the seam between the two blocks.
Stitch in the ditch of the binding.
Fold the top over and press the velcro together to hold it closed. All done!
Slip your tablet inside for easy carrying and to keep the screen safe and clean.
Wouldn’t this make a great gift for the holidays this year for your tablet lover?
The backside is just as nice as the front.
Suitable for guys too, DH likes his. Of course, fabric choices are key for the guys.
Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Moda Fabrics by United Notions, and the prize is two layer cakes!! Thistle Farm and Harvest Hill prints are perfect for fall sewing, and making gifts. They would make a bunch of Tablet Covers!
