No, I’m not awesome enough to own an iPad. In fact, I don’t own an ‘i’ anything. But I have a good friend who is always whipping hers out to share pictures of her trip to Italy to play with an equally awesome symphony, show me hilarious YouTube videos, and write warm-up ideas down during our choir rehearsal. She has a nifty magnetic cover thingy, but I am always looking for an excuse to sew something. I can’t participate in any piano concerto, but I can sew!
I followed the tutorial at Fresh Lemon Quilts, and it was magnificently easy. These types of projects are great for zipper newbies. I think it took longer to cut the pieces than to actually sew everything together. I used fusible interfacing so it is a bit poofier, and I used her measurements instead of the iPad2 measurements because of the extra bulk.
I know my friend likes blue and orange, and I had nothing in my stash to accommodate that. Well, I had the orange zipper… but darn, I had to go fabric shopping at ETC :)
I did have this appropriate lining fabric in my fabric cupboard. What would hold an iPad better than a bushel of Apples?
