Picture of Create and Sew a Wacom Tablet Protector Sleeve
Wonder Woman Inspiration
I'm a desk klutz. If there is a liquid, heavy object, or random food particle near me it will undoubtedly land  on the one object it has no business touching. One of my beloved desk residents is my Wacom drawing tablet. This was a gift from the DH and I want to keep it and use it for many years to come. I have lived in fear of keeping it displayed on my desk for the noted reasons. I also need to transport my tablet, and I don't want it cracked in the process. Worry no more, I've sewn up a quick and inexpensive sleeve that it slips into to help keep it safe.

* You can score big points for just creating a sleeve for your SO to keep their expensive gadgets in without having to purchase the gadget too. :) A thoughtful gift that keeps on giving.

I love Wonder Woman and used her as the inspiration behind the construction of the sleeve. I created a free machine embroidery design element from the Wonder Woman logo. This was my first attempt at such a piece, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. There's always room for improvement, but I really enjoyed attempting a new technique that can be applied to any number of projects.

My favorite childhood toy, a 1976 Wonder Woman doll, was my lovely assistant and helped me photograph the tut.

While these instructions create a sleeve for a Wacom tablet, you could follow the general instructions and create a sleeve for any electronic device. ** The logo element I created was attached to the sleeve prior to sewing all fabrics together. Jump to step 8 if you want directions for the design element.

Be kind to your Wacom tablet and it will be kind to you. :)
