new gadget

May 3, 2011




My adorable husband got me an iPad 2 for my birthday and, of course, I had to make a cover for it!  Jeannie sent me the link to this tutorial.  I love the patchwork and knew I wanted to use some of the dream on charm pack that I bought forever ago!  I love that line and the vintage sheet feel of it!  So happy! The rest is osnaburg, can't get enough of this stuff!!  :) 





The only alteration I made to the pattern was to use a velcro tab closure instead of a zipper.  I made a 5"x5" square (just right sides together with a layer of fusible fleece) and then just scooted it down into the position I wanted it.  I probably trimmed about 2" off of it when all was said and done.  I added the velcro after the entire thing was finished to ensure that the placement was correct.  

The cover does not fit as snugly as I would like but it does the job of keeping my new toy protected when I put it in my bag!!  :)
