My iPad 2 sleeve


I got myself an Apple iPad 2 a couple of weeks ago, and I've been enjoying it ever since.  Well, actually, it seems like our girls are spending a lot more time with this new "toy" than I do, playing games, watching videos, and listening to the music...


For protection purposes, this is the sleeve that I made for our iPad.   I basically followed this awesome tutorial from One Shabby Chick to make this one.

 The sleeve is machine quilted throughout with two linings sandwiched in between - fleece batting and medium interfacing., which makes it very sturdy.


I used my favorite Melody Miller fabric line from Kokka to make the sleeve.  This fabric has a heavy "canvas" feel, which is great for making tablet covers, I think.


I'm very happy with how this cover turned out, as much as I like my iPad! 
 Although I was surprised to hear on the news today that Apple is launching a new iPad 3 next week, only few weeks after I got my iPad 2!!  OMG!

 Oh well, but that's okay, as I'm an old fashioned "low tech" type of gal, who doesn't require the latest gadgets anyway :P

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a happy "leap" day tomorrow :)

ipad2買ったんですね。カバーがとってもよく出来ています。布もビンテージのキッチングッツがプリントされていて可愛いです。私も最近PCを買いましたが、家で使うので容量重視でノートにしました。でも、持ち運ぶにはタブレット型のほうが便利ですよね!

@PY - Thank you so much for your sweet comments, as always :D

@cocostitch - 確かにipadは便利ですが、CD/DVD が使えないのが困りものですね…。とはいえ家中あちこちに簡単に持ち運びできるのはとても便利です♪
