Did you guess right?

Well done to Jeanette, Beth and Sukie who all guessed it was some kind of bag or holder and even got the iPad right as well!

Most of my free time has been taken up with my new toy! I have never owned an i phone so this was a new venture into apple products and I'm hooked!
I went with the pink apple smart cover but still wanted something to keep it a bit safer. Having looked around the stores and seeing a sea of black generic cases out came the sewing machine.
I used this tutorial as a starting point and away I went.
I purchased the lovely fabric and matching webbing from here and adore this fabric so think I will need to spend a few more pennies to get a bit more for my fabric stash!

Here are the photos of the finished case - love how it turned out, however somewhere along the line (I think when I adding the lining) I seem to have lost a small amount of space so the iPad only fits in without the smart cover!! So although I love this case I really don't want to have to take the cover off each time so guess what I'm doing this afternoon - got it ..... yep version 2!!
A zipper section at the back for all the extras
There is the culprit! I wanted a nice thick lining in addition to the quilted front so I recycled a old jumper but I think it was a little too thick!

Awesome! I like how you used the old sweater for the lining - great idea (even if it is the reason you need to make another.) And I like that zip pocket on the back.

Jeanette said...

Very nice, I really like the lining.

This is very cute! I think that I would love to have an iPad, but can't really justify the expense right now. I'm going to start saving my money, though!

I love how you used the jumper for a lining...even if it did end up making the fit a little too snug.
