I made a couple more sleeves for a Nook and thought I’d do a quick tutorial.
But let’s just say that this may be my first and last tutorial. I tried, I really did. But, I think other people may be better at the whole thing. Plus, I just kinda learn things as I go, and I’m not 100 percent sure it’s the best way to do it.
But these cases are cute and I think you need one, so bear with me, okay?
But, let me be up front. THIS IS NOT AN ACT OF PERFECTION. I take little shortcuts and don’t expect everything to be perfect. So, if that’s a problem, you may not wish to do this project.
So are we all on the same page? Good!
Fabric A (exterior) (For my fabric A, I joined 5 strips from a Top Drawer Bella Green jelly roll to give it a pieced look. You can also use a single fabric, like I did in my first sleeve.)
Now, make a sandwich of the main body (with pocket on one side) and lining. (Fusible fleece should be on the outside.) As you can see, the bottom of the pocket is outside the main body pieces because I didn’t cut them off. That’s not a problem, they’ll be on the inside and you’ll trim it later.
At this point, it’s a good idea to check to make sure your reader fits inside. You know, just in case.
(This is about the point I realized I forgot to add the Velcro. So I quickly added it to the pocket, approximately centered.)
I’m sure there’s another way to do this, but I’m going to try to explain how I do this. First, put the lining into the main body (with the good side of the fabric facing the interior). It should fit snugly.
What do you think?
(Although I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t tell me how horrible this tutorial is. It may drive me to drink.)
