This DIY tablet case is the perfect little protective accessory to add to the collection. It’s super easy, all you need are the right tools and a thimble and you’re good to go!

I sewed the case by hand because the felt and the leather together would have been too thick to pass through the sewing machine. You can find an awl and the stitching wheel on ebay for next to nothing, I’m definitely going to be putting the tools to good use. Next month I’m going to make a handbag, and maybe some more leather accessoires!

Below you’ll find the video and a step by step!

You will need :
  • Leather 
  • Felt
  • 2 buttons
  • 4o cm of cord
  • Chalk
  • A ruler and a stanley knife or rotary cutter
  • A leather needle and thread
  • A thimble
  • Bulldog clips and scraps of leather
  • An awl & a stitching wheel (available on ebay)

things you need to make a tablet case



1. Mark and cut the leather and the felt to a flat envelope shape the size of the tablet. The height should be around 2 and a half times the height of the tablet, add an extra 3cm on to the width for the seam allowances.



2.  Using the stitching wheel, prepare the seams  3. Pierce the markings made with the stitching wheel.

4. You can use bulldog clips to keep your work together while you sew. 5. Sew the case together using a single needle saddle stitch

6. A single needle saddle stitch consists of going in and out with the needle from one hole to the next, once you have finished the seam, you then come back around working backwards through the hole filling in the blank spaces with the thread 7. Attach the buttons and the cord or the closure of your choice.
