Sew an iPAD Cover/Case : Razorback Style

26 Jul

Brandon’s padded IPAD case

Brandon was blessed to receive an iPad before Father’s Day.  I immediately thought about making Brandon a cover for it as a Father’s Day present but all of the iPad covers in blog world seemed a little girly.  I knew that I couldn’t make him this iPad bag since it really looks like a purse.    When I found this tutorial from A Step In the Journey I knew it was perfect!  Instead of a monogram on the front I tracked down some Arkansas  fabric.  Oh how I love the internet. 😉

Brandon was so excited with his gift.

As crazy as it is this is the first thing I have ever sewn for Brandon.  Poor guy!  (I do mend things for him often but definitely need to make sewing for him more of a priority.)  The look on his face was absolutely priceless when he opened it.

There is a pocket on the front and the back for storing cords and such.

I found the tutorial to be great.  I loved the idea of using a hair tie instead of elastic.  It’s actually easier because you don’t have to sew the elastic together.  🙂  The only change I made was to sew the button on with the sewing machine in the beginning stages.  I had to guess a little on the placement but it worked out great!  I used a quilted padded black fabric for the inside, a sturdy red fabric for the outside, and fun Arkansas fabric for the pocket.  I love how it turned out.

So thankful I could bless my sweet husband by making him an IPAD cover.
