Sewn iPad sleeve

In the last post we showed off the pattern for a great knitted Nook cover; this time, we’ve got an iPad sleeve to show you, fresh from your sewing machine!

This is a great quick project that uses just a quarter-yard of fabric, so you can try out some of the gorgeous quilting prints we carry and make a bunch of different ones! I made this one with just one fabric (Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow Dogwood Blooms in Lake), but you could also make a contrasting lining!

Self-lined:

 

1) First fold your quarter-yard in half, right sides together, the short way. Sew around with a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 1″ gap to turn.

2) Press your seam, turn inside out (being careful to get your corners turned fully), and press again, taking care to press the gap closed.

3) Fold in half the short way again, and sew along three edges close to the edge, leaving the top open, starting and ending 3/4″ from top edge, backstitching at start and finish. Turn right-side out, and press.

That’s it!

 

Contrasting lining:

For both fabrics, cut in half the short way. Place together with right sides facing, and sew around with a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 1″ gap to turn.

Follow the directions for the self-lined version from step 2).
