Done!

One finished iPad cover....



To make, cut four pieces approx 26x22 cms, one front, one back and two lining pieces (you may want to quilt or applique the front before you cut to size as I did) Cut two pieces of wadding (batting)Round all the corners. Layer your pieces, front,wadding, lining. make or buy some bias binding and bind the top edge. do the same with the back, back,wadding and lining. Before you bind the top of the back make a tab, stitch on a piece of velcro and stitch in place when stitching on the binding.


If you cant get the same colour Velcro use white and use a Promarker to colour, Stitch the opposing piece of Velcro to the front.


Place your front and back together and using another piece of bias binding stich them together starting where your binding finishes at the top edges.All the bindings are hand stitched on the reverse.





Done! Tip!...I would make the binding that goes around the sides and bottom a little wider next time. But I'm quite pleased for a first attempt.

Most impressive and I love how you have cleverly disguised a very high tech modern piece of kit inside a wonderful quilted apple cover.

I seriously love this - I am trying to figure out how I can convert it to a cover for my iPad, in the style of the ones I make, with a backing board and elastic corners to hold the screen in place.

The apple looks very improvisational, but I think I can work it out...

Actually, seeing your back catalog of quilt stuff, I think I will send you something via email...

MA, again
