super easy ipad cover...

well, we got an ipad. 

it's so pretty.

and shiny.

and scratch-able...

so i made a quick cover for it.  just a little something to prevent it from getting scratched or dinged during travel.

i started with some old curtains and an old t-shirt.  i roughly measured three times the length of the ipad, and about an inch wider...


i laid the curtain fabric on top of the t-shirt, so i only had to cut once... 


cut it out... the t-shirt for the inside, and the curtain for the outside.  then used an old cargo pocket on the back for some small necessities (the charger... some headphones...), and sewed that on (only to the outer layer)...


serged the top edge of the inside flap... 


then folded up a pocket the size of the ipad, allowing for a nice long flap in the front...

and simply serged it all the way around.  i didn't bother sewing it... i like the look of the serged edge, and it saved me a step!


and voila!  i simple ipad cover. 


(i might... MIGHT... either do a new one or take this one apart to add some batting in between the layers for some extra protection.  but for now, this will suffice!)

  2. When I made my ipad cover I used a couple of layers of fleece as the middle layer to protect it http://condo-blues.blogspot.com/2011/04/make-ipad-cover-and-stand.html. I added a pocket too. It's so handy! I don't know why more iPad covers have them.
