Finished - Tablet Travel Pouch

My husband has a new technology toy (read that:  "keep your hands off my ipad'), a Kindle Fire DX.  Actually, a pretty cool little gadget.   We are doing some traveling soon and he requested a cover for the Kindle.  I stopped everything else I was working on for this little "emergency" project.

The design needed to include:

  • Fit easily into his carry-on bag.
  • Ensure the device would not fall out with all the jostling of travel.
  • Include a place for reading glasses and the charger
  • Selection of fabrics that would be recipient-appropriate!

And this is what I came up with:
 The pocket in the front is expandable and perfectly mustached!
 For his required accessories....

Mission accomplished!  My husband is really happy with this and I had fun!  Another win-win!  What do you think...should I make this my first tutorial?

Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday and Lindsey's Fabric Frenzy Friday and TGIFF at mila+cuatro .

  10. Please do a tut. My hubby is so supportive of my quilting, I have been thinking of making him a manly cover for his tablet. And yes he needs a pocket for his reading glasses so he doesn't lose them all the time. Cindy/
