Protect your iPad in style with this simple sewing pattern. By Kirsten Edwards
You will need:
● One piece of felt
● Cotton fabric and wadding, at least 12in (31cm) by 17in (44cm)
● Small piece of felt in a contrasting colour, 9in (23cm) x 6in (15.5cm)
● Small piece of Velcro, 2½in (6.5cm) long
How to make
Cut out rectangles measuring 11¼in (28.5cm) x 16½ in (42cm) from the felt, cotton and wadding. Layer the wadding, felt and cotton (right side down), lining up edges.
Machine-sew the three layers together with a ¼in seam, leaving one short edge. Clip corners and turn right side out by sliding your thumbs between the felt and the cotton.
Press and turn in raw edges by ½in and sew a ¼in seam on outside.
Fold the small piece of felt in half lengthways and sew a 1/4in seam all the way around, leaving one short edge.
Turn this small sewn piece right side out, turn in raw edges, sew a ¼in seam on outside and press. Pin and sew to outside of felt cover, 4in (10cm) in from one short edge.
Pin one side of Velcro to end of tab and sew in place. Fold cover in half and bring tab from back to front to work out where other piece of Velcro should be. Sew to body of cover.
Blanket-stitch top and bottom edges of cover together using embroidery thread.
