My friend bought a Nexus 10 tablet recently and asked me to make a case/bag for it.  After I started making it for just the tablet, he asked whether it would be possible to fit his tablet in there when it was in his bigger keyboard case.  As I'd already cut all the fabric and started embroidering it, I decided that instead of starting over, I'd stitch in some side panels with press studs so you could open the bag out if the tablet was with keyboard case, and close the sides up if the tablet was on it's own, and it would still be nice and secure.  I added ribbon tabs at the top of each side panel so that a bag strap could be added at a later point.  It's  3 layers of felt for each panel, and the chakras have all been embroidered by hand, and were from Urban Threads.  The case has a small pouch on the inside to keep usb cables and other bits in, and the case closes with three press studs.  Smiley  I totally wanted to keep it for myself!!!
