|Owl Tablet Cover|
We even found a matching fabric in a fabric store to put inside and to make the case stronger we have inserted cut out piece of plastic folder between the two layers. I must admit, it was challenge to sew the layers together with the plastic in place and to make the corner on the zipper opening. I was happy that my mom was the one doing the sewing, while I only did the knitting and figuring out the pattern.
Notions: Yarn needle, scissors, fabric 2 rectangles about 10" x 8" (26cm x 21cm), if using the plastic insert two pieces of plastic folder slightly smaller than 7" (18cm) x 9"(23cm), brown colored zipper 16"(40cm) long.
K2tog = knit 2 stitches together, this decreases 2 stitches to 1 stitch.
Gauge: 21sts& 27 rows = 4” in stockinette stitches.

Sew the white patches to the tablet case using the picture as a guide. Embroider the iris of the eyes with black yarn.
Use the two rectangles of fabric. Sew the two sides together. Insert the fabric inside the knitted piece. If using the plastic insert it between the two layers. Attach the zipper to the opening and sew the zipper to the knitted and fabric layer. To make the corner we have made a small cut in the zipper fabric to make it easier to sew it in the corner. Before sewing on the sewing machine tuck the ends of the zipper between the layer of fabric and knitting for a neat finish.
