    Really easy tablet clutch. Its design is easy to make and follow. I already made 3 pieces of this for each member of my family and they love them!!

    Lovely! Thank you for this free pattern.
    Made mine with FlexFoam — think I’d use fleece in the next one, as the top edge curls — probably due to bulk of the foam. My fault, not the fault of the pattern.
    It goes together quickly and easily, and it makes it easy to transport my iPad, including the Logitech thin keyboard.

    A big thankyou for this wonderful free pattern, everyone loves a freebie, and one that makes such a good looking tablet bag is such a bonus.

    This is a great tablet clutch. Very easy to make and looks great! I made it my son’s tablet and it fit perfectly!! Nice quick sew!! Thanks for this pattern!

    Dakota is a classy pattern with just the right amount of detail. Once again, the directions and diagrams are clear, it can be made in an afternoon, and you end up with a custom-made case to show off. I swear, I use my iPad more than I ever have because I am so delighted with the case! Thanks for another great design!

    This pattern is so fun. My daughter loves her Dakota for her Kindle fire. It’s a little big, but not exclusively so with her kid tough case. This was a pretty quick and easy sew, and the pattern is free!

    I can’t believe this is a FREE pattern. What a great gift it makes. I found the fusing paragraph a little confusing at first, so I think my first ones got both interfacing & fleece on the lining….but that was probably my interpretation. I figured it out with a little help from Alicia! I sold that first one immediately!!! I will be making more of these

    Alicia, this is just a general review. All your patterns are terrific. Your bags go together like a hot knife through butter. The only trouble I have is the trouble that I make for myself, by trying to take shortcuts. We don’t say it enough, but you are GOLD and we do appreciate all you do for us. I always get the months pattern right away, and then cannot wait for the next month. Keep up the great work please.
