Tablet Make Your Own Sleeve

For those who like to try to make things themselves and save a little money, you can pretty easily make your own sleeve.

This one is just made by sewing together two pieces of cloth. They were shaped like a rectangle with one half having a larger width. They are then folded in half before sewing the unconnected sides (minus the top of course). Add a flap with a button hole and a properly positioned button and it is finished.

I chose to use a soft microfiber cloth for the inside so that I knew the screen wouldn't get scratched. You could really choose any outside fabric style you like. I just happen to like brown, dark reds and oranges (anything fallish). It didn't cost me anything because my mother who likes to sew had all these materials as scraps. Cheaper, more unique and more sturdy than something I would buy online.

You should do like some other folks, and ebay them.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Teach a man to set a fire, and he will stay warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will stay warm for the rest of his life.

I've seen a lot of them posted on etsy. If I enjoyed making them, I could probably end up making a lot of money. One is enough for me

Fair enough.
