Keep your technology safe and secure, we show you how to make a tablet case of your very own

 

If you’re lucky enough to own a tablet then you’ll no doubt want to keep it safe. Forget spending lots on expensive designer cases, use it as an excuse to do some extra crafting!

This simple envelope-style case will make sure your precious tablet stays lovely and new looking for as long as possible, protecting against bumps and scratches with its soft material shell.

We’ve added a handy pocket at the front which will be big enough for a small notebook, a couple of pens and perhaps a stylus so that you can keep all your organisational essentials together.

Because of its slim appearance and design you won’t be adding any weight or bulk to your tablet, ensuring it’ll still fit neatly into your favourite bag.

If you don’t have a tablet yourself then don’t keep the idea to yourself! Share it with friends, or even better make someone a present of a homemade tablet gift. Who wouldn’t love a hoe made treat that looks as good as this?
