Show and Tell 2 - an iPad case

The very first 2 things I made this year are actually for someone else but as she hasn't seen them or tried them on yet I guess I can't show you them!

The Atlas gave me an iPad for Christmas which was a complete shock and he got a keypad with it so I could blog so I needed to make a case which accommodated both but meant I could just use the pad without taking the keyboard out too. I used this gorgeous green doily to function as a pocket on each side.

Just as I was about to finish it The Atlas told me I needed a pocket for a cleaning cloth so I included that too.

The zip around the corner is a bit wonky but I love the fabrics and the doily was another advent gift from Leonie.

I've also added a cute zipper pull tag which is a necklace pendant of a saint carrying baby Jesus through the water.

This was made entirely from stash I didn't purchase a thing! So I can officially tick 1/12 for things made from my stash this year.

Joining in for show and tell and creative spaces.

Great job - looks awesome! You will be the envy of every hipster you see ;-)

Leonie said...

Awesome, I love that you used your stash. What app are you using for blogging on your iPad. I used Blogsy while we were away as the iPad will only let you add one photo when using blogger in safari.
But I must say, I love my iPad! Best purchase ever!
