My iPad mini arrived on Friday, all shiny and gleaming and futuristic. But as with all electronic devices, I needed a case and scratch protection and and some kind of cute contraption to carry it around in and I needed it right now. But after standing in front of a display of not-that-cute iPad cases and sleeves and whatnots at Best Buy and frowning disapprovingly at the ridiculous prices, I thought, “Wait! I have a sewing machine! I can make one of these!”
And so I went home and rooted around in my stash:
Found a tutorial: http://www.huckleberrylove.com/2013/01/ipad-mini-case-tutorial.html
Added some fusible fleece for a bit of protective padding:
I can’t say I’m super impressed with my edge stitching at the top or with the button loop, but I had much more success with the fusible fleece than I did the last time I attempted to use it (and no, I don’t want to talk about it), so I’m going to call it a win.
