You did a really great job! Thanks for the tutorial info. Today, I'm finishing off a crossbody using a zippered front pouch video (free) from Craftsy, which I tweaked to suit what I wanted. By the way, did you use a bag zipper?
I just used a regular dress zipper. I've ordered some bag zippers (with the long pull) and I will do this again in a different type of fabric.
The Kasey bag from LeSportsac costs $42-$56 and it's only 7.75 x 9.5 inches in size. I really like it but I don't think I can ever spend that money on such a small bag. Next best thing? I challenged myself into making a knock-off!
I loved how my bag turned out . The only thing I regret is using laminated fabric. (I laminated it myself with iron-on vinyl.) It got all wrinkly when I turned the bag over to its right side. Maybe next time I will just use cotton fabric or maybe I'll try ripstop nylon.
I just borrowed the strap from another bag as I didn't have the right sizes of bag fittings on hand.
Saw one of these at an office supplies shop a long time ago. I wanted to buy one as we always misplace our flash drives around the house. After thinking about it, I decided to just make one. So much cuter.
The case has plastic pockets for two flash drives and closes with velcro. It also has a key ring so you can easily attach it to your bag or hang it somewhere or use as a keychain.
All I needed were fabric scraps and a few hours of my time!
We've had our iPad2 since late last year but I managed to make a case only today. Installing a zipper is always daunting for me, hence, the delay.
The outer cover is denim lined with fusible fleece. I printed out an Apple logo and used it as a template to make my applique.
The interior is quilting weight cotton lined with light fusible interfacing. I used a continuous zipper cut to length for this purpose. As with my other recent projects posted here (cosmetic bag and travel wallet), I opted for bias binding to give the cover a nice finish.
Most handmade iPad cases I've seen around are simple sleeves or zippered pouches (like large cosmetic bags) so I hope this gives you inspiration to try out something different. Elastic corners to hold the iPad and all around zippered closure for maximum security!
So glad this thread got bumped, I love your travel wallet! Now the one I made for myself a few years ago simply won't do, yours has inspired me. Can I ask what interfacing you used to make it so stiff and thick?
I used Peltex 71F. It is a single-sided fusible ultra firm stabilizer. Really very stiff so it's great for this purpose.
