This case is lined with minky for extra softness and cushioning, has a button closure, and a front pocket.
Stay tuned for next week when I make the wireless keyboard case with leftover materials from this week!
3 fat quarters
1/4 yard minky
4" thin elastic
To keep things straight, I'll be referring to the fabrics like so:
From fabric B cut one rectangle 9"x8" and one strip 2.5"x13"
From fabric C cut one strip 2.5"x13" (we'll use the rest of fabric C to make the keyboard case)
From your minky cut two rectangles 9"x11" and one rectangle 9"x8".
This is the only tricky part. Take the the fabric B rectangle and place it right side down on the three strips you've just sewn. We want to position it so that the edge of fabric C goes from one diagonal to the other. Make sure that there is 1/4" over hang from the corners to account for the seam. Pin in place and sew 1/4" away from the edge of fabric strip B.
Fold the fabric over and then iron and top stitch in place.
Trim off the excess
so that you're left with a 9"x8" rectangle.
Flip the fabrics right side out and stitch in place with a 1/8-1/4" seam. This is now our pocket piece.
Take the other fabric A rectangle and pin it in place right side down on top of the pieces we just pinned.
Sew around the three edges with a 1/4" seam. Clip the corners and trim off any excess.
Turn it right side out.
Sew them using a 3/8" seam along three sides leaving a 2-3" opening at the bottom for turning. Leave it inside out.
Pin the top edges together like so. Slip your elastic loop you made (4" elastic looped together and sewn together to hold in place) in between one of the layers of fabric and minky. Make sure that it is centered between the two side seams.
Pin in place. Sew around the opening with a 1/4" seam.
Shove the minky lining into the bag and then topstitch around the top edge with a 1/8" seam.
You're all done!
Now your iPad has a happy new home.
Come back next Friday to learn to make the keyboard case with leftovers from this project!
