Measure your tablet, add an extra 6cm along the width and 3cm along the length. This allows 1cm seam allowance. This case is for a mini IPAD. The IPAD measures 20 by 13.5cm, the finished case is 16 by 21cm. I therefore cut the fabric 18 by 23cm.

Cut two pieces of denim. Utilise the pocket of your former trousers to add detail plus additional storage.Cut two pieces of shirt.

Cut two pieces of interfacing. Iron the interfacing to the denim, think about the grain of the denim.

Cut two pieces of a type of wadding, I used fusible fleece. Bear in mind the thicker the material the more protection but also the impact this has on the internal size of the finished case. Attach to lining fabric.

Pin your denim right sides together. Stitch round three sides, leaving the top open.

Pin your lining right sides together. Stitch down the sides, and a couple of cm’s along the bottom of each corner.

Trim the corners of your denim, and lining as shown.
Turn your denim right side out, carefully turning the corners neatly out (I used a knitting needle to help turn out crisp corners).
Create a button loop from thin elastic. Pin on the back, in the middle. I suggest you measure and mark the middle.

Place your denim inside the lining, so that the right side of the denim faces the right side of the lining.

Pin together, ready for stitching together.

insert-pieces
Stitch round the top of the case.

Turn right side out. Sew on the button, in the middle of the front of the case.

Slip stitch the bottom of the lining together, and carefully push the lining into the denim.
