Tablet cases and stands


Since getting my own iPad, I decided to venture in making cases for tablets and readers. I have several different styles. Some are tablet keepers with a Velcro closing belt that can be turned inside out and propped up as a stand. These keepers have a hard insert inside to keep the form stable so that it stands on its own and doesn’t slide under the weight of the e-tablet. This also works to be a hard cover protective layer for your electronic. I can make a pocket for your tablet so it is extra protected without the worry of sliding out, or for the stylus, keyboard, or notes. On the opposite side is either elastic a or fabric corner pockets, or both, to keep your stylus in place while propped up standing. The style is both practical and beautiful!

My other style is a case, or sleeve, with a kisslock closure. This is a new and stylish way to make a padded and protective sleeve for your tablet. The sizes vary depending on the metal frame. I have a 6″ frame which holds minis, kindles, nooks, and small tablets up to size 5 1/2″. The 8″ holds iPads and other tablets up to size 7 1/2″ but it is too tight for any keyboards or protective covers. I also have a 9″ frame which will be roomy enough for the keyboard, and I have a 10″ if you need more room? These are usually about 12″ long (the larger version), so that your tablet clears the metal part of the kisslock frame. I usually like to decorate these with a ruffle or flower which is nice to look at. Anther fabulous option is the detachable chain. If you feel it would be more practical to store it in a hanging position, or to carry it around by a strap, then that option is always available in this style.20130127-150326.jpgDSCN5433SparrowsIpadmini (5)DSCN5430


Kisslock wallets.


My newest items, and so much fun to make! These are some adorable wallets that are both practical and stylish. I immediately made one for myself and have been using it all the time! Mine is the blue one with the pretty flower, but I have lots of colors in chevron print fabric so there is a variety available! Another new product I have been making are iPad cases and stands!
