I’ve been issued an iPad at work for development stuff, but was not issued any kind of case for it. I was worried it was going to get scratched up in my tote bag, and tossing it in with the work laptop was less than ideal for the metal surfacing on both devices. Oh dear, whatever shall I do?

Wait a minute…this is an excuse to sew something!!!!

I started with a plan to use this pattern at Dixie Mango and modify it with something to let me open the cover while keeping the iPad secured. I used some super stiff appliqué interfacing and a layer of batting to give it a little squish.

Then I didn’t remember to add my extra bits on before sewing it together, forgot to sew on the velcro and cut my interfacing too small. ::sigh::

It came out super cute anyway, since I used two of the incredibly adorable Very Hungry Caterpillar fat quarters I’d gotten a while back. And super useful since it does protect the iPad pretty well.
