iPad Cover Tutorial – DIY iPad Case Using Fat Quarters
Made from two fat quarters, or three if you want to use three contrasting colors, these DIY iPad covers will fit most iPads, including the iPad Pro, but probably not the larger version, and may also fit some android tablets.
What You Need
DIY iPad cases can be made from fat quarters or yardage; you’ll need two fat quarters and three different colors of polystyrene to make a DIY case, or you can just use yardage or scraps you have on hand.
Fusible Fleece or Batting
Back: 12u2033 x 9u00bc” Bottom Front: 12 x 6u00bd” Top Front: 12u2033 x 2u2033.
You can use a 14u2033 Zipper to make your own zips or a Make-A-Zipper Tassel to finish.
We used a Lapel Stick to hold the fabric in place along the zipper (watch the video to see this in action) or you can just use pins. Sew all around the outer edges with a u00bc seam. Back-stitch over the zipper parts to help reinforce them. Trim the excess away from the corners to reduce the bulk.
How do you make a tablet pouch?
Measurement is the first step.
- Measure your tablet or laptop and add a 1 inch seam allowance.
- Next, cut the fabric batting to the exact length and width of your tablet.
- Iron the fabric if necessary.
- Finally, fold the seam/fabric over the batting and pin the edges in.
