I’ve been wanting to make a case for my iPad for a while. An organiser type thing, for those times I’m rushing out the door and want to take it with me, along with my diary and note book. I knew it had to have a zipper, to keep everything secure and organised. Oh, and it had to look great. Always.
I came across a wonderful tutorial on www.ohhowsweet.com for a sewing travel case, which had a zipper closure, and have adapted the case to fit an iPad with extra pockets to keep me organised. I have included a full tutorial below – I hope you enjoy it!
1/4 yard Exterior spine fabric. *Recommend medium/heavy weight fabric, ie: home decor, canvas, duck, denim.
