We've had our iPad2 since late last year but I managed to make a case only today.  Tongue  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!  Wink

Thanks for looking!

This turned out great. I like how it opens like a book.
