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!

    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!

    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!
