I got my dummy iPad in the mail (and had 1,000 issues with it - it wasn't advertised as "used and absolutely covered in deep scratches). But it sat around for awhile as I'd had some sort of problem with getting my sewing machine out and WORKING.
A few days ago I was determined to come up with a version 1 for an iPad case. I'm starting to keep a super precise pattern book and keep all my patterns exact and uniform. I enjoy math...I'm that weird kid who would have rather taken math classes than drawing classes and though I consider myself creative, I'm also a fan of precision and numbers. ANYWAY. I came up with this pattern. Picture #1 shows the first try. It was far too small... so my numbers were dummies. Picture #2 shows the second case, which was roomier than I liked, so...
Meet try #3. It fits perfectly! The flaps a bit crooked, but that's easily fixed. In later versions (that will be featured in the shop) I'm going to add pockets or some kind of embellishments. If I have any iPad owners out there, would you tell me what sort of things you carry with your iPad? What sort of things should I make this case capable of carrying? I'd love to know!
But I'm happy with how this turned out. I love using velcro, and haven't made anything as of late that needed it.
Versions 1, 2 and 3! I can't believe I had the will power to whip these all out in one day. Typically if I make a failure I get frazzled and try again later.
I'd love to hear ideas about what kind of pockets/embellishments would be good to do.
I've got a new version of a cosmetics bag to show off sometime as well, so watch out for that.
