Felt Tech Case for Dad

What better way to present your Dad's shiny new tablet than inside a customized sleeve? This one can be a full family effort: you stitch it together and let the kids decorate with cut-out letters and designs.

Introduction

Three materials are all you need to stitch this stylish protector for Dad's go-to tech accessory. The wool felt is soft enough to keep the screen scratch-free and the embroidered stitches are strong enough so that the sleeve's edges won't fray. Here, we paired a charcoal grey color with pops of blue and green, but personalize your own with his favorite colors.

materials

  • Felt (in various colors)
  • Embroidery thread and needle
  • Craft glue

steps

  1. To make a felt case, cut two pieces of felt measuring ΒΌ" larger than the size of the tablet on all four sides.

  2. To sew, use three threads of embroidery floss to blanket stitch three of the 4 sides; to end the stitch, tie a double knot between the two layers of felt.

  3. With scraps of blue and green felt, cut out letters for the word "DAD" and glue to case; let dry.
