Kuoria – case for laptop, tablet, sewing supplies
This ebook consists of very detailed sewing instructions and pattern for 5 sizes. It is not just a simple sewing tutorial, but rather structured like "a real book" or even "screenshots of a video + text", with lots of tips and info. Don't be intimidated by the number of pages. There are only so many because everything is very detailed with lots of photos, so even bag newbies can follow along easily. Advanced sewers can just sew by pictures and read up if something is unclear and skip the rest of the pages. Beginners, on the other hand, might miss these pages. So everyone has the chance to sew my patterns.
Difficulty: 3.5 of 5 – Working time: about 3-6 hours
The Kuoria case can be made in 5 sizes (your device should be at least 1-2cm (1/2" - 3/4") smaller in height and width):
Size 8" H 15cm x L 23cm (5 7/8" x 9") // Size 10" H 20cm x L 28cm (7 7/8" x 11") // Size 13" H 24cm x L 35cm (9 1/2" x 13 3/4") // Size 15" H 28cm x L 40cm (11" x 15 3/4") // Size 17" H 32cm x L 44cm (12 5/8" x 17 3/8") //
Each size can also be made in 3 depths: slim (1cm - 3/8"), half-depth (2cm - 3/4"), full-depth (3cm - 1 1/4"). The bag can hold documents up to A4 in size (8 1/4" x 11 3/4") (only for sizes 13"-17") and the 17" bag even fits A3 (16 1/2" x 11 3/4") format! The bag is made completely without binding.
The bag has a zipper closure. This can either be top opening or you can make it a zip-around case so that it lays flat when open.
The front exterior features an angled zipper pocket to store small items, such as charging cables and other supplies. This interior pocket can hold documents up to A4 in size (8 1/4" x 11 3/4") (only for sizes 13"-17"). Even a keyboard fits inside, depending on the size.
Sewing case options: The instructions show how to include a "pen/tool holder" and also a two-part zipped mesh pocket.
Combine the instructions or create your very own interior - for example as a crafting case, a bag for knitting accessories or a small first-aid kit.
The pattern includes two different types of side strap connectors, using eyelets or D-rings. Alternatively, you can sew the strap connectors into the top (e.g. necessary for the sewing case). You can attach a long shoulder strap to the strap connectors and carry Kuoria as a real bag. I also show you how you can add useful handles, if you want, to your bag in the instructions.

What others have made
Even as a child I always wanted to look behind things and know how they work. I never wanted to become a teacher or a veterinarian like the other children, but always an inventor. So with the foundation of my label Hansedelli in April 2014 I fulfilled a childhood dream, because as a designer you are somehow an inventor :-)
As Hansedelli I design patterns for bags, purses and co. and create sewing instructions. I attach a lot of importance to detailed instructions and good photos, so that even beginners can follow the instructions. Visit me on Facebook www.facebook.com/hansedelli or on my website www.hansedelli.de
