tablet holderIt’s summer! Which means you might be looking for some crafts to do with the kiddos! This tablet holder, using Peanuts fabric is perfect, especially for summer trips! Without a case, tablets can slip right out of your hands, or get lost in the shuffle of a full backpack. This handy tablet holder project gives you a one of a kind accessory for your favorite device.

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Peanuts fabric collection:
  • 1/4 yd. Flying Ace Parachuting fabric – main
  • 1/4 yd. Coordinating fabric – lining
  • 1/2 yd. Double fusible fleece
  • 1 Package double fold bias tape 1/2″ width
  • 1 yd. Webbing 1-1/2” wide
  • 10” zipper
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Sewing machine

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut two 9”x12” from each of the fabrics and fusible fleece.
  2. Attach the fabric to the fusible fleece following manufacture instructions – panels.
  3. Stitch the bias tape to the top of the 9” side of the panel. Repeat for the other panel.
  4. Sew the zipper to the side of the panel that the bias tape is on using a zipper foot. Topstitch the zipper in place.
  5. Fold the panels together matching raw edges with the main fabric facing out and baste in place.
  6. Place the handle inside the bag. Center each end against the side seams of the bag. Adjust each handle end so it extends 2” inside the bag and baste the handle in place on each side of the raw edges.
  7. Open the bias tape, fold and press the short end 1/2″ in to the wrong side. Aligning the edge with the edge of the back panel and baste in place (stitch in the fold line), stop 1/2″ before you reach the corner, turn and stitch to the point, backstitch and continue sewing to the other corner and repeat the process. When you reach the end cut the bias tape 1/2″ longer than needed, fold and press the short end 1/2″ in to the wrong side. Refold the bias tape to enclose the raw edge, fold over to the front side and edgestitch in place.
