Adam got me an ipad for my birthday (YAY!) and I love it. It's perfect for responding to blog comments, browsing my favorite blogs & watching netflix in bed. I knew that I wanted to make a cover for it but it was just a matter of finding the right tutorial.
A few weeks ago I stumbled on this laptop case tutorial by the cottage home. When I saw it I knew it was the one I wanted for my Ipad. I followed the tutorial pretty much step by step...but I did change a few little things. Here is what I did.
The tutorial called for the following equation for figuring out what size pieces of fabric you'd need:
(L + H + 1) x (W + H + 1)
My case turned out just a bit tight, so the next time I make it I might use the following equation:
(L + H +1.25) X (W + H + 1.25)
My Ipad (with the smart cover on) had the following dimensions:
Like I said before, I follow the cottage house tutorial almost exactly, but I made one final change. Instead of button holes, I used velcro. Yes, velcro. I like velcro and I don't like button holes. I guess I could have used this tutorial as a learning experience for sewing button holes - buuutttt... I didn't. Velcro it is! I then glued (yes, glued) a button on for decoration.
Here is my final case. I love it!
I love the fabric and I love how perfect it is for carrying around my Ipad.
