Item details

PDF pattern instructions to make this beautiful yet simple to construct "Madison" case with zipped top and side pocket, padded and lined with handles for your eReader!

***This listing is for a SEWING PATTERN only, photos of finished items are examples only and are not included. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED BAG FOR SALE***

Super fast and simple construction. Great for gifts, boutique or sell your own creations on Etsy!

The pattern for this set of instructions will fit Kindle Fire, Kindle 2 or 3, Nook, Nook Color, Sony eReader, Kobe Reader, or any device up to 5" x 8" x 1/2". The case is slightly oversized, so it is designed to protect and enhance a device with a cover. With so many covers available it is impossible to anticipate every style and size of cover that might fit. The cover I tested is a folio style cover for a Nook. It measures 6” x 8 1/8” x ¾” and was a snug fit. Very fitted covers slide in easily.

Instructions are included to adjust the pattern for some of the new smaller eReader models. If your eReader is 8.1" x 5" x 1/2" OR SMALLER, this pattern will fit.

You can use this pattern to create a cover with zipped pockets on both sides, or a cover with just the single zipper and no side pocket. Instructions will give the simple modifications.

If you have never installed a zipper, no problem! The method used is extremely easy. If you can sew a straight line, you can make this cover. The inside is fully lined, all seams are enclosed in the finished case and it is fully padded to protect your device. The process is super simple with a professional finished result.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the cover. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.

I have been sewing for interiors for over 20 years and have attended numerous classes, seminars and other instructional venues. I hope that sharing my experience with you in making beautiful items for your home will give you much pleasure and lessen frustration with trying to 'figure out' how to make an item without instructions or with limited instructions.

I also offer sewing tips and brief tutorials on my blog at
