I haven’t been posting much on my crafts recently, as the time that I have been making anything has been quite late at night, so photos just haven’t been much of an option. I have been making myself a crochet bag and pouches for both my 2 in 1 laptop and tablet. Once I had finished crocheting them, to both add some added structure and protection I decided to make a liner out of fabric.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get some stages photos of making the pouches however there is a number of ideas, patterns and tutorials on Pinterest and YouTube if you want to give it a go. So if you want to add a liner to your pouch, here is my quick and easy way to make one.
How to make a Quick and Easy Pouch Liner for a Phone or Tablet
Making the liner will take approx 15 mins with a sewing machine, but can be hand sewn.
- Fabric – I started with a fat quarter
- Fabric Marker
- Needle and Thread ( or Sewing Machine)
- The device you are making the liner for
Lay your fabric right side up on a flat surface and press with an iron.
Place the device on the fabric in a position that will allow you to fold the fabric over the top and 1/4 inch from the bottom
Fold the fabric over the top so it is a snug fit, and mark where the fabric meet flat on the surface, also mark where the top of the device is, and 1 inch above the top to allow for a hem.
Mark up the fabric using the marks made in the previous step, and cut the fabric making sure to including the extra 1 inch for the hem
Turn the fabric with pattern facing down, and fold the hem back and press the hem.
Turn the fabric with the pattern up, and fold in half. Make a 1/4 inch mark on the bottom and open side as a guide for sewing.
Sew along the bottom and open side.
Place in the pouch and sew along the top to secure in place
Liner is complete 🙂
