Sewing Tutorial: Quilted Tablet/Ipad Case Great Scrap Buster Project

I have been trying to use up some of my fabric scraps recently and while looking through my pile of scraps I stumbled upon some spare anchor themed fabric by The Cotton Craft Company, I have been wanting to make a quilted iPad/tablet case for a while and decided to use this fabric to make one. This is a great way to use up leftover fabric – you could even join multiple pieces together to get the size of fabric you want and make a patchwork front.

Quilted Ipad case pattern:


  • For main case one piece of fabric 33x24cm.
  • Contrasting flap fabric piece 3x6cm.
  • Button.
  • Lining piece for quilting and piece of batting 33x24cm.
  • Lining for pocket – one piece of fabric 33x30cm.
  • Piece of ribbon 15cm long.
  • Pins.
  • Scissors.

Quilted Ipad case pattern:

  • Lie the flap piece along the top of the main pocket piece right sides together and sew along to attach.

  • Layer the lining piece for quilting and batting on top of the main pocket piece – avoiding the contrasting flap piece. Pin to secure then complete quilting in pattern desired, I did diagonal lines for this one, following the line in the gap between the anchors.
  • Fold in half placing right sides together, pin and sew along the longest side at the bottom and up the side right to the top of the flap, but leaving the top flap side unstitched.
  • Turn right side out, it’s now ready for lining.
  • Take lining piece, fold in half placing right sides together and sew down the side and along the bottom, leaving the top unworked. Do not turn the lining, and place into the pocket.
  • Fold the top of the pocket in 1cm and fold the lining 1cm out so that the two folds meet on the inside, repeat the whole way around pinning as you go, Making sure in the centre of the back you also insert the two ends from the piece of ribbon making the loop for going over the button, then sew around close to the edge with the machine.
  • Sew buttons onto front of the fabric lining up with the location of the ribbon.
