I had the pleasure of spending the day with a young friend while his mom was at work. My friend loves Thomas the Train and his iPad. While he dozed during a midday nap, I snagged his iPad and tried out a carrying case project which was inspired by I'm Working on a Project (shown below). The iPad arrived in just a plastic bag, so a secure and padded case is needed for the trip home.
The above was inspired by the tutorial at Amy's Creative Side, and with my next iPad case I will probably follow Amy's directions (she pictures the step-by-step). I measured my friend's iPad and created rough patterns then did some sewing similar to how I made my stockings. The completed case (mine, shown below) is a bit tight so next time I know to add in a bit more allowance on the edges. Also, I almost had a craft fail when I realized I had sewn the lining and outside pieces together (so I didn't have to do binding) but then, the outsides weren't sewn together. That required one more seam, which I think makes my finished project a bit tight.
