Three days ago I saw this iPad cover tutorial by Amber of One Shabby Chick. And for some reason, I just had to make one. Immediately. So I used a gift certificate to one of my local quilt shops and picked up the Alexander Henry Heath fabric I've been eyeing for a long time. The I sewed this up during this morning's naptime.
It's lined with a teal moda crossweave and will house the new-to-me iPad that I'll inherit from Rob once the second generation version comes out later this spring. That's right. This thing won't get used for months, because there is no way Rob is going to forego his nice leather case for this one. Which is alright by me.
Although, I really could have used his iPad today. I kept having to come back upstairs to view the tutorial on the kitchen computer, then remember the instructions on my way back down to the sewing room. Because of this, I messed up on the placement of my velcro and had to re-do it after the cover was all done so that the flap would work. I realized how great it's going to be when I can take a look at my favorite websites and blogs right there on my sewing table!
