I’ve got some beautiful fabrics from Modern Yardage a few months ago and I have decided to sew some little tablet carrier bags for me to bring out during weekend for a short coffee break. The size of this tablet carrier bag are suitable to keep your iPad, Kindle, Galaxy Tab, Google Nexus and other handheld electronic devices of similar size. They are good for books too or a quick grocery store trip, just dump your keys and phone in and off you go!
This tablet carrier bag tutorial comes in 2 versions, with or without zipper. I have developed the tutorial for both bags to suit your interests. “With Zipper” will be for intermediate level and “Without Zipper” is easier and quicker to sew.
I ordered 3 yards of fabrics from Modern Yardage early this year, Bumbaloo Collection by Marcia Copeland. Unlike the usual cut to yard fabric we bought off the shelve, Modern Yardage fabrics are print-to-order. They only print after you have placed the order via their website to save storage space and reduce the waste of out-dated prints. This quilting weight fabric comes in 58″ wide, but they only printed on 44″. The additional spaces at the side are printed with other interested things, like: wash instruction, free patterns, etc, you could use this section for sewing something fun. Modern Yardage uses environmentally-friendly, water-based textile pigments that is not harsh to human and the Earth. Read more to understand their product, here.
