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 am totally in love with the little Sarubobo character that hangs off the side. 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!!
