This is a second size of the iPad sleeve. It is perfect for an iPad (2 or 3) with a Smart Cover.
I'm working on these pattern pieces this weekend. First I have to make a costume! I'm going to a party to go to this evening and do not have a costume (yet).
Going to a party is a bit of a stretch for me. I don't generally enjoy socializing in large groups, but I'm trying. By "large" I mean more than 4 people. I should have worked on a costume earlier in the week, but it was better just not to think about the party and the costume. Thinking about it would have led to thinking about reasons not to go!
Anyway, these pattern pieces will be ready sometime this week.
For this sleeve I added a fabric piece to grasp when opening the flap. During Anna's Sewing Summit lecture on Finishing Techniques she showed a picture of a pouch where a tiny tag of fabric had been sewn into the seam as an embellishment. It was awesome.
Now I want to add fabric tags to everything. After adding the fabric piece, I couldn't resist adding buttons on top. Yes, I can't stop with the button embellishments. Buttons are fantastic, I just don't want to have to actually button them.
I've used VELCRO again on this one. Yeah, I like that stuff--even the ripping noise is appealing to me. VELCRO should change its slogan (if they have one...) to "VELCRO - Let it RIIIIIIIIPPPPPP".
Ignore the blue marks around the bottom of the VELCRO pieces--they are just Mark-B-Gone pen marks that need to be washed off.
Those of you who don't like/actively hate VELCRO, I have some good news to share with you later. Stay tuned!
