free tutorial: ipad, kindle & nook sleeve

June 12, 2012

ipad, kindle, and nook sleeve sewing tutorial

My Ipad needed something pretty to cover it. So, my friend Anna made these adorable sleeves. She’s pretty awesome.  There are 3 different FREE patterns (for the Ipad, Kindle and Nook).

What I love about this sewing tutorial is that there are several options. First, you have the option to have a button or zipper closure. On “The Ruby” pattern, you get to choose where you’d like the diagonal part. And finally, they are instructions for the Ipad, Kindle and Nook. Lots and lots of options. See why I think Anna’s awesome?
