Yay for the sewing machine!

I love my sewing machine and love it even more when my ideas come to life!!
The latest project is my iPad case version 2 (see here for version 1) and it is exactly what I wanted. I didn't have enough fabric left over from my first try so I raided my fabric stash and luckily had bits and pieces that went together well.

I tweaked the first design a bit. I put the zip pocket on the front rather than the back so that I could fully quilt the back making it a little more cushy and soft! The pocket is great for keeping little accessories.
I also added some little fabric tabs (not sure what the real name for these things are!?) to each end of the zip to make it look more finished.
Inside the zipped pocket I also quilted a full piece of lining for even more protection!!
This time around I sewed the fastener into the main flap so its all hidden away neat and tidy.
For the lining I went with a lovely soft flannel cotton and yes it fits snug as a bug with the smart cover on!!!
Now onto my next project!!

Wow, this turned out great! I love the zippered pocket with the tab / extension thingies (I'm pretty sure that's the technical term) on the sides. That definitely adds a polished look. I love your fabrics, too.
