Using the Fluffy Sheep Quilting iPad cover tutorial created by Geraldine of Sophie Belle Design (published in the shop newsletter) I made these:
I altered the tute a bit to include quilting a bit of batting onto the exterior panels of the front and back. I also eliminated the elastic cord described in the tutorial and instead used a piece of ribbon to close the top of the iPad snuggie.
You see, I had first strictly followed the tutorial and made this one:
I learned a thing or two in the process. First, these fit a "naked" iPad perfectly. However, mine is usually sporting on of those magnetic screen cover things (see? in the first two photos?) that add a bit of bulk to the width of the iPad.
Second, I can not get elastic cord in Galway (shocking...) so I tried to use a hair tie. It was too thick and short, making the closure a bit funny.
And finally I thought a larger print looked better. I'll still take the elastic cord-sporting smaller version and modify it again to make the closure a bit better. It will still be loved and used. But the little fishy and scooter versions just make my heart flutter.
Thank you, Geraldine! These were a treat!
