A friend of mine recently got an iPad and asked me to make a cover for it. She didn't want the pocket type that most people have but instead wanted something similar to a laptop cover I made for myself (http://www.juneatnoon.com/2009/08/my-cozy-mac/). So I chose some nice, sturdy felt, constructed an iPad mockup out of layers of foam board and elastic, and went to work.

(I really should get to those wrinkles! Pretend they're not there, ok?)

It's sewn with an overlocking stitch on my machine and closes with hook and loop.

I'm really pleased with this piece. It has a nice, sturdy feel and, if I do say so myself, it looks pretty sharp. I don't have an iPad, but I think I might need to use the leftover felt to make a cover for my mockup, just so I can carry it around! Smiley

teehee, well that's all an ipad is for really, carrying around so you can look cool :-P

that's a very smart and snuggly looking cover though, i'm sure any ipad would love to have one!
