iPad 2 Cases

Well this weekend I felt like sewing!  So with Jillian getting her iPad for her Birthday, she needed a case. So after looking around I decided to make her one ~ she did get a smart cover but it doesn't protect from bumping around.
 So I took the Snap Happy pattern by Stitching Sisters and revised it.  I love the technique of the closure ~ an old measuring tape!  Yes that is right to get the "snap" you cut up an old tape measure ~ be sure and lock it or you will have it ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!  Ask me how I know!
So I wanted a pocket on the front so I used Lazy Girl Designs Perfect Pouches pattern.  These can be made without batting to be a pocket on something else.  I also only sewed around the 3 sides to leave the top open to side other items in.
I then embroidered iJillian and iBunny on the pouches before stitching them together.
This was a fun, quick project! 

Bunny's iPad case in the horizontal style.
Jillian's iPad case in the vertical style
Jillian normally carries her iPod everywhere so I added the zippered pocket

Perfect pouch used as a pocket open at the top in addition to the zippered one.
