A tutorial on making a tablet cover with soft felt and fleece materials using blanket stitching and gluing techniques. The tablet is measured and pieces of felt are cut to create a shark design which will make up the protective case for the tablet. The pieces are first stuck together to create the visual design of the shark and the edges are then blanket stitched to create a strong edge which will not separate. The result is a novelty shark tablet case which will carry and protect the tablet whilst also looking attractive.
Children can practise making a small purse or pencil case using felt and simple stitching and gluing. They could draw, design, cut out and stick a felt motif onto the front. This could be extended to larger projects once children are more confident.
