Tablet Keeper Blog Tour with Nancy Zieman

Posted on January 4th, by Amy in finished project, give away. 50 comments

I’m excited to be participating in this blog tour celebrating Nancy Zieman’s most recent Trace ‘N Create templates.  All month long you will see lots of creativity on the participating blogs, as each blogger shares their personal Tablet Keeper.

One of my sewing projects last week was my own Tablet Keeper!

Nancy’s new template set is perfect for your e-reader or iPad, but if you prefer paper there’s options for a  paper pad as well!  The best part is there’s no paper pattern pieces to keep track of, all the measurements, and markings for three sizes, are on one template.

I made the medium size to fit my iPad.  Once I cut my pieces and added interfacing the project went smooth and quick!

The instructions are on precise, and easy to follow.  Also the directions are on one piece of paper, which is great if you have trouble keeping pages in order, like I do.

I had fun making this, and would love to make more as gifts.  They are simple enough, and easily customized for everyone’s personality and style!

Nancy is hosting a generous giveaway from Clover.  Visit this post and leave a facebook comment at the bottom, for your chance to win!

  1. I recently purchased an iPad, and I have been looking for just the right case for it. I think that I might like to make one of these myself. This looks like a great template kit, and I
    really like the looks of the finished product.

  2. LOL I’m such an old poot – I saw your title and thought of a cover (notebook, kinda) for a legal pad…that’s called a tablet, right? :) Love your project – the colors are wonderful!

  3. BEAUTIFUL….Santa brought 2 Kindle touches this year….so my next project is one for me and one for Katey, my daughter!!! Nancy Z’s set would be PERFECT!!!! I am looking forward to seeing the other bloggers also….

  4. Love your description of the process. Makes me want to try one even more!! What did you use for the corners? Is that bias tape strips, twill tape, ribbon, elastic????

  5. Your project always look awesome already Amy but this really looks awesome. I love that it doesn’t involve tons of pieces and instructions.

  6. Great tablet keeper! I like the belt and didn’t realize until your photo that it is a Velcro tab. The template looks like a terrific tool! Thanks!

  7. What a neat idea! I’ve tried a couple of times to make one and it just never turned out right – I think I can work with this one. Thanks.

  8. I want to make one for grand’s Kindle Fire. One for me to hold paper notebook. I’m not up on the electric ones.
    Thanks for idea.

  9. I received a Kindle for Christmas and I have been looking for a great pattern for a cover for it. This tour is a great place to start. Thanks!
