anniversary gifts for couples New Sewing Pattern! The Busy Day Tablet Case customized gifts for mom

Today I’;m excited to be introducing to you a brand new sewing pattern, the Busy Day Tablet Case. It’;s a padded tablet case pattern with a zippered pocket and comes in 3 different sizes.?

A few years ago I got an iPad Pro and it changed entirely the way that I design fabric. I was never one that could master drawing “;blindfolded”; with the Wacom Tablet.? With the iPad and pencil, I was able to more easily translate my “;ideas”; into actual fabric.

As much as I love my iPad and pencil it drove me crazy that I had to carry the pencil around separately.? Apple seems to be alway releasing new “;gadgets”; to go with their tabletsanniversary gifts for couples, which I love but also?which pose a problem for storage.

Recently I upgraded to the new iPad Pro and even though you can attach the pencil to the tablet it still falls off and I find storage to be an issue.? I gifted my older iPad to my daughter to use for graphic design.? She again kept losing the pencil!

Over the holiday?break, I quickly stitched up an iPad case for her with a zippered pocket. It was based on my laptop case tutorial from a few years ago.? I improved and simplified the instructions and added a pocket for storing earbuds, pencils, stylus, chargers etc.

I’;m excited to announce that I’;ve created a PDF pattern for the tablet case and I’;m calling it the “;Busy Day Tablet Case.”;

The case pattern comes in 3 sizes designed to fit a variety of tablets and sizes. You “;might”; even be able to fit a small laptop inside one but you’;ll have to double check that for yourself.

Since I like to carry my tablets with protective covers I’;ve made the cases large enough to fit a tablet with a case on it. You could also fit a few notebooks inside if you’;d like.

I’;ve created a video?to explain the pattern and my inspiration for it to you! I’;ve been blogging for 12 years now and to be honest, I just need to try something “;new”;. Video seems to be the “;thing”; I’;m working on this year.? You can watch it below.

The tablet case is in my shop now. CLICK HERE to go to the shop.?Or use the buy button at the bottom of this blog post. For a limited time to celebrate the release of the pattern, I’;m including a bonus PDF pattern. It’;s our super popular Sunnies Sunglasses Case and it’;s free with the tablet pattern purchase.

The fabric the cases are created from is my new line with Riley Blake Designs called Fox Farm.? It hits stores this month, and I can’;t wait to share more information about it with you in the next few weeks. Including a fun quilt along!

Was there ever a more classic color palette than blue and white? It’s a combination that has stood the test of time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t interpret this perfect pairing in a more modern way. In this living room, we used solid upholstery and white walls (in Benjamin Moore’s White Dove) to create a clean, uncluttered room that lets bold drapery and a patterned rug shine.

I’ve got another Cricut Maker & EasyPress DIY project for you! Don’t worry, it’s still simple, but adorable! Look at these Heat N Bond Holiday Gift Bags I made! This no-sew?project is perfect for people like me! You know… people who don’t sew, but people who still want to use fabric with their new Cricut Maker.

I’m packing up the car and headed to St. Louis for International Quilt Market. ?I’m very excited to introduce my newest fabric line Safari Party to the “quilting world”. ?I’ve been sewing like a mad man for the last 2 months. Throw in a bout of the flu, and a couple of trips and this last few weeks have been absolutely insane.
