iPad cover for road trip

We will be going on a little road trip this year and I wanted an iPad cover that would be good for the kids to use. Thankfully this one came as part of my Sew Box Subscriptions package in December from Little Moo Designs




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!)

Plain but fun reverse side

Tick. Another item off the list!

  1. sample and used the elastic loop as I wanted it to be easy for the children (sample indicates a magnetic but you could use Velcro too and accelerated the size a little so I should healthy the iPad with its existing cowl inside.it besides so it wouldn't have labored.I'm working at OOH Media Software A pocket at the out of doors wouldn't be satisfactory and i assume i will attempt it next time. So nobody appearance at the interior lining as I had to do a little unpicking and re-sew after and it isn't neat and tidy that is for certain.
