Rainbow Sherbert Tablet Cover

tablet case with rainbow stripes

Handmade tablet covers are an awesome way to show your personality: just use your favorite colors and your favorite stitches!


This uses a simple wave stitch pattern and Rainbow colors to create a fun design that reminds me of Sherbet (hence the name).

I designed this tablet cover for my Ipad mini. I made it in landscape orientation because that’s the way I typically use my tablet.This cover measures at 9″ x 5.5″ and it has some stretch, so it should fit over slightly larger devices. It fits over my Ipad mini with the hard case on it.
