Step 1) Applique the red cross (optional).

Draw a 1″; grid on the square of fusible web.

Fuse the web to the red felt following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Following the drawn lines, mark the sides of a cross on the backing as shown in the photo.

Cut out the cross without removing the paper backing; this makes it easier to see the shape’s outline.

Fold the long felt rectangle (body strip) with the iPad inserted between the layers. The iPad should barely peek out from under the felt.

Remove the iPad carefully. Pin the sides of the folded felt to hold the layers in place.

Folding the flap down, determine where you would like the cross to be positioned. Fuse the cross into place.

Because not all felt fuses well, you may want to topstitch close to the edges of the cross, all the way around the perimeter. I like to use BERNINA Edgestitch Foot #10 for this, as I can move the needle position to the side and simply align the fabric edge with the guide in the center of the foot.

Step 2) Shape the flap.

Mark the top of the case 1″; from the edges. Mark the sides 1/2″; from the top of the pocket. Draw a line between the two marks, then cut along the drawn lines to shape the flap.

Step 3) Add the small pocket.

The small pocket in the back of the case lets you take a soft cloth with you to clean the fingerprints off the screen of your iPad.

Use the pinking shears to trim away the edges on three sides of the small 3-1/2″; x 4″; rectangle.

Center the small pocket on the back of the case, being mindful of the direction of the pocket and the positions of the fold and the flap.

Stitch the pocket to the body slowly to avoid stretching it, about ?”; from the edge, pivoting at the corners.

Step 4) Attach the flap strap.

Optional: Reinforce the edge of the flap by stitching 1/8″; from the sides. Use a contrasting thread for added interest.

To personalize your case further you could sew a decorative stitch through the middle of the strap. (See photo at end of instructions.)

If desired, sew lines of stitching 1/8″; from the edges of the strap. Fold the flap down and place the long narrow strip 2″; from the top of the case, over the flap.

Pin in place.

Pin the folded side of the case body.

Sew along the edges of the case with a 5/8″;-wide seam allowance, catching the strap in the stitching.

This large seam allowance allows you to use further decorating steps if you feel so inclined. You can run a second row of stitching inside the seam allowance, you can also use your pinking shears on the edges.

Your new case is now ready to house and protect your iPad. It is light and slim and will not weigh down your handbag. Take it along everywhere!

Do you find yourself short on storage? Or is the storage that you have not really your style?

About four years ago I saw?Kelly (a garment sewer) mention on instagram that she was sewing five button down shirts at the same time. I thought she was absolutely crazy, but then she posted picture after picture of the progress she was making. They were small steps, but in a few weeks she had five beautiful new shirts! This was my introduction to batch sewing.

Pull up a seat, relax and enjoy our new deck with me! Honestly, I’ve never been a huge fan of decks. My dream house had French doors that led to a beautiful brick patio overlookingan expansive yard. Trying to convince myself that this house was the one, was a little difficult. The back of the entire main level is a sunroom, which we’re using as a breakfast room, a screened in porch and a deck in between. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, not exactly. That also means that it limits the light and views from inside our home. Unfortunately in Missouri, that’s 6 months of our year. Rather than use the sunroom occasionally, we made it our breakfast room to enjoy the views on a daily basis. We’ve transformed the screened in porch into an outdoor dining room {more coming soon} and I’m using the same strategy for our deck. I’m incorporating concepts that I love to make the most of the home we have. I have to say, I’m glad I let go of my dream to realize a much bigger one!
