fabric iPad sleeve and mobile phone case

My lovely husband bought me an iPad for Christmas and I’ve been glued to it ever since!   These days I refer to it for almost everything and don’t know how I managed without it!  I still use the laptop as a word processor, but the iPad is just great for sending a quick email or for instant access to the internet, since you don’t have to wait for it to ‘boot up’ like the laptop.

Now that I’ve got an iPad,  I need a sleeve for it, right? Sure, I’ve got the official apple iPad case thingy, but I’m talking about one made from fabric! So naturally, I went ahead and made one.….

I’ve made lots of these little cuties as keyrings for friends and family – they are just so sweet!!  Sarubobo dolls are traditionally made in Japan by mothers for their daughters as lucky charms.   They are not supposed to have faces but I sewed eyes on mine. You can find the tutorial on how to make them here.

I also made a matching case for my mobile phone …..

It seems that everyone is using some sort of tablet these days. Quite a few of my friends and family have got iPads now and I have been busy making sleeves for them all.  I’ll post some pics of the them soon, but until then ……

Happy stitching everyone!!
