FREE Crochet Pattern for Wacom Bamboo Tablet Crochet Jacket

Sold my last sleeve jacket for Wacom Bamboo Tablet.  So I made more.  check 'em out.

Wacom Bamboo Tablet Sleeve Jacket, Cover, Case or Bag

Begin with 60 single chain.
Connect the chain to form a circle. 

single crochet to each chain link. (this should be your 2nd row)

the third row is double crochet.
( I used two colors, so you can really see the pattern of this pouch)

repeat single crochet row and double crochet row, 'till you have 14 double crochet rows
and 14 single crochet row.

The 15th single crochet row will be the row to form the latch to go around a button to secure your device inside.

How to form the latch.
After the 14th row, begin the 15th row with single crochet and when you get to the 15th single crochet, (which is the middle of the bag) single chain up to 20, to form the latch and then continue to single crochet to the next chain to the end of the 15th row. 

that's the end of your bag,  Now, you just secure the end of your sleeve by tying a knot and addding a button. 

Oh Yes, you do need to close the bottom of the bag.  I usually used a big thread and needle to close the bottom of the sleeve.

Crochet Bird Nest

I just couldn't help myself.  I saw a bird nest in my rose bush and look in it and found three blue eggs.  It must be a Robins nest.  I have been seeing Red Robins in my yard lately.  Anyway... I hope I didn't do any harm by crocheing a bird nest for the them for added comfort.  Hope the mama bird doesn't get mad.

What to do with craigslist find

I have a thing for chairs and I always find myself on looking for that great find.  And here's one.  I bought it for $10 from a dude.

Before picture
After seeing it on craigslist, the price was the first thing that caught my eye and the next thing was Bing!... I can easily reupholster this chair.  and I was right. 

my daughter doesn't agree with the flowery material I chose for this chair.  But I thought it was perfect.  Now I can choose a color and crochet a toss pillow to go along with it.  Maybe something green or blue.

I usually paint the furniture I find on craigslist, but this is perfect as is.

That is what you can do with a great find from craigslist.
