Ipad Case

I managed to make a case for my Ipad 2 at last – I will be travelling abroad next week and wanted something sturdy and convincingly protective. I found this excellent tutorial on One Shabby Chick and after some initial fabric choice struggles set to work in the wee hours. It took a good 3 hours or so from start to finish.

The fabric is Echino Camera in Turquoise which I bought last year  from the excellent Eternal Maker, with the lining in Anna Maria Horner Loulouthi framed in Citron. In the background you can see the reverse of my Little Folks lap quilt.

I had to undo the lining and trim the excess wadding as it was quite thick and a bit of a snug fit for my Ipad (admittedly with Smart Cover and back protective cover on). But after doing this it fits in beautifully. I used two layers of batting for the outside (the second layer didn’t go right to the edges) to make the quilting more apparent which probably meant I should have left out the wadding on the lining.
