Hi!

I like cute, so the Ipad mini was made for me  Wink But I hate typing on the screen so I also got a keyboard that fits the Ipad mini.
Now, I needed a case, no a CUTE case!

Browsing the internet I came across a felt case with the look of the start screen of the Ipad, FUN! I have no idea who started this, because I came across several cases on Etsy. So I can't give credit ...

On to the pictures:


Cute, right?!
It started with black, thick polyester felt. Not so pretty, but thick and firm so very usable!
I sewed two pieces together at 3 sides.
On a piece of nice, pretty, grey wool felt I glued Ipad icons, also made of felt. I secured them with a tiny stitch in the corner.

A close up of that:

(The ruler is in cm)

That grey piece of felt was glued on top of the black polyester felt. I finished it with grey embroidery floss stitches. It was so thick, I had to use pliers to get the needle through!



It looks nice if you ask me!

It needed a closure of course. That wasn't easy.. No zipper; too thick. No velcron; don't like the look of that and it ruins my felt. No flap; makes it all so thick and how to close that??!!
Okay, I decided to keep it simple and just sewed a piece of ribbon on the black felt (the edges weren't glued on that perfect, so I could easily sew under the grey felt).
A nice button on the back and what do you know, it works!!  Grin



So that's it! Hope you like it as much as I do!  Cheesy

Thanks!

This is so so so cute!! What a wonderful little case. I can't believe the detailed work you put into the embroidery. I've seen similar versions but yours is by far the most adorable Smiley.
