Nook Tablet Cover, not a pattern, just my measurement notes

I wanted to make myself another cover for my Nook Tablet, just like I saw on Etsy.com.  I didn't want to buy one, nor did I want to pay for a pattern.  The challenge is in figuring it out by myself!  Here are the measurements of the fabric pieces I need to make the covers.  Not a pattern, just my notes so I can make more. 
Nook Tablet Cover

2 pcs - 6.5" x 9.5"
4 pcs - 3.5" square, pressed in half diagonally for corners
1 pc - 11" x 9.5", pressed in half with 9.5" ends together for pocket
1 pc - 2" x 9.5" for closure loop

1 pc - 12.5" x 9.5"
If using a pieced front cover, make 2 pieced pieces 6.5" x 9.5" and sew along the 9.5" side
Batting of choice 14" x 11.5".  I use fusible fleece.

1 pc - 11" x 9.5" for chipboard sleeve
1 pc chipboard slightly smaller than 11" x 9.5"

Knitting & reading

I've never read Charlaine Harris until now.  I thought all her books were about vampires.  Dopey me.  Her Aurora Teagarden mysteries are of the cozy genre and revolve around a part-time librarian, mystery buff.  I read her third book first on my new Nook, borrowed free from my local library via .pdf download.  I couldn't get any others this way but found the 2nd, 4th, & 5th in paperback @ my library.  I'm enjoying them so far.  I love being able to download free books from our library system!  This is why I wanted a Nook or Kindle in the first place.  I've had both the Nook & Kindle apps on my phone & computer for awhile now and like that I can read on them but my eyesight isn't so good anymore and the small print on my phone was killing me.
