I've made quite a few ipad cases, especially over the holiday season.  Whatever I make, I usually wind up keeping the experimental ones, or the "not so perfect" ones. It feels so decadent to make one for ME! ALL MINE! I picked up a few goodies recently for my precious ipad (camera connectors, stylus, square credit card reader) and needed a pouch added to keep everything together.  Now if only the bluetooth keyboard wasn't so much longer than the ipad, I would have added a place for that too! What do you guys think? Too bold?








In case you're wondering how it's standing up (magic!), I used masonite or particle board.  I learned in previous versions to round out the edges so it doesn't eventually wear through the fabric.  There's a LOT of layers in there. Fusible fleece, medium weight interfacing, timtex, kevlar, okay...maybe not kevlar. But that would be awesomesauce.

The fabric is just the right percent of boldness!  Cheesy

Please please please share some dimensions with me!!! My dad cut some particle board he had in the garage for me (maybe 1/8 or 1/4 thick) and I'm hoping to get started on my first one this week!

Oh... that fabric! I am in love.  I don't have an iPad yet, but if I did, that is the exact case I'd pick out. Beautiful!

I've found you're best off with 4.5"x9" 2.75"x9".  It'll leave you with a bit extra for the topstitch allowance so you're not struggling.  It doesn't affect how it stands up either.  Also, I would definitely recommend filing all the edges and corners so they're a bit rounded.  After lots of wear and tear, you don't want the sharp edges and corner to wear the fabric away.  I learned that one with my first case.  It's still holding up, but you can tell it's rubbing the fabric a bit too much.  So yeah.  Generous seam allowances, and file the edges.  Smiley Good luck!
