I did some scrappy quilting on the front - great way to use up little bits and pieces and chose fabrics as they are reasonably gender neutral for my big boy and little girl.
I varied the pattern and used the elastic loop as I wanted it to be easy for the kids (pattern suggests a magnetic but you can use velcro too) and increased the size a little so I could fit the ipad with its existing cover inside.
Now for my failure. Yes I not everything is a success. I actually made a pocket on the inside but didn't factor that the iPad would get caught on it as you try to slide it in. And the cover is a firm fit anyway so it wouldn't have worked. A pocket on the outside wouldn't be fine and I think I will try it next time. (So no one look on the inside lining as I had to do a little unpicking and re-sew after and it isn't neat and tidy that's for sure!)

Tick. Another item off the list!
