Weekend Sewing


Posted on July 6th, by Amy in finished project. 33 comments

Over the weekend, I did a little sewing.  I had wanted to make a better pouch for my new iPad, and I’m pretty happy with this one!

I didn’t have a pattern, just a few images in my pins on Pinterest that I used for inspiration, so that added a little frustration at a couple of points.  In the end, I am happy with my pouch!

The fabrics are some I purchased at Market, by Hokkoh.  (Thanks Sally ; ) )  I used sew-in velcro for my closure, no magnets or snaps allowed.   And it’s nicely padded with fusible fleece in both the exterior, and lining, and 2 layers of batting as well.  I might make another for a pattern or tutorial – if there’s enough interest.

For now – I need to catch up with the kids!

  1. Adorable…love the colors! I don’t have an ipad but if you posted a tutorial I would use it to make a couple for gifts. I know tutorials are alot of work though so no pressure from me ;)

  2. I think you pouch is really neat! Yes, I would definitely like to see a tutorial on this one! Love the fabric!!

  3. love the ipad case–I made one for my husband in a dark gray that opens vertically, I would like to make one like yours–a tutorial would be helpful!

  4. Its adorable and perfect! Yes something like this would be wonderful! And if you included the size of your ipad and then we would have the size you give in your tutorial we could figure out how to adjust sizes for things like kindles, etc!

  5. Would love a tutorial :) My niece asked for a pouch for her kindle and this looks like it would work wonderfully. Thanks

  6. Oh, yes please! I just got a new ipad2, picked my fabrics, pulled out my bolt of fusible fleece, so now I only need motivation to pull it together.

  7. Yep, I can relate to that – creating something without a pattern can lead to frustration; but, if it works out, ah, the feeling of accomplishment!
