Measure the size of your tablet, and cut out a paper template the same size as the tablet on a folded piece of paper, so that when unfolded the paper template is double the width of the tablet.
Cut 7 cm wide strips out of the denim fabric and the Star and Bunting fat quarters and use these strips to make strips of fabric out of one piece of the denim and one piece of the Star and Bunting which when sewn together are 6 cm longer than the length of the tablet. Make enough of these strips to that when sewn together the total width of fabric is double the width of the tablet and an additional 5 cm. to sew together take the two strips and place right sides together, and sew down the edge.
Cut a piece of batting the same size as the patchwork piece and add quilted details.
Fold the patchwork outside piece in half with right sides together and sew along the bottom and up the other side leaving the top edge unsewn. Turn out the right way.
Make the lining by cutting two pieces of fabric the size of the tablet with 3 cm added to the width and 5 cm added to the length. Place right sides together and sew down the side along the bottom and up the other side.
Place the patchwork outside piece inside the lining so the right sides are together, put the ribbon in the middle of the back of the case between the patchwork outside and lining folded in half with its raw edges against the raw edges of the top edges of the case.
Sew around the top edge leaving a 8 cm gap for turning. Turn out the right way and slip stitch closed the gap.
