Nintendo Switch Fabric Cover

I recently had a friend ask if I could build them a pattern for a Switch fabric cover. Apparently the Switch has a little…quirk where the stand will scratch the screen, so people have been created 3D printed stands and also fabric covers for the screen.

After getting the measurements from my friend, I have finally built a decent pattern for the cover.

Please note: This is a rough pattern that I have not tried yet and there may be errors! Please take your time and be willing to test the design. Feedback on this pattern will help so much!

Seam allowance: 1/4inch, already included in the sizing.

Skill: Beginner

 

Front fabric piece (This will be the part that is visible. Make it as fun or nerdy as you want!

7.5in x 5in (Idea doodled onto a sticky note for those that prefer visuals)

Back fabric: 7.5 x 4 in

On the front fabric, fold 1/4 inch of the fabric twice to create a rolled hem and sew across to hold the fabric (I do recommend folding the fabric, iron the fabric down, fold again, iron, then stitch. This will keep the fabric still and make sewing easier.) Note: Fold the right side of the fabric to the wrong side of the fabric.

Repeat this with the back fabric as well. This will make the bases clean on both sides.

With right sides together, sew the front fabric to the back with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. The front fabric will be about 1 inch longer so be sure to continue the seam down to seal the sides of the front fabric.

Now, if I did this correctly, (and you did as well) you should have a Switch cover that will fit snuggly and keep your controller scratch free!
