My DIY iPad and e-Reader Cover

I am the first person in the world to (gasp!) not LOVE my ipad.  I like it a lot, I love to read blogs and check my email and facebook on it.  But it is not like a laptop, and I wish I could blog from it.

For Christmas I got a keyboard case, which I am hoping will make my expensive gameboy a bit more useful.  Thus I needed a new case…  just something to store it in so the back doesn’t get scratched up in my mom bag purse.

To Pinterest I went, and found this tutorial.  I was lucky enough to be at my Grandmas house, with a sewing room the size of my entire top floor of my house.  I found some cute fabric and I kind of winged it from there.

Because of my non perfectionist ways, this red floral one was REALLY snug on my ipad, so I plan on using it for my nook or kobo.  The inside of this one is red, which gave me the added band on the sides. 

I made another case and decided to add some batting in there for added cushion.  I really like the batting and the way it feels.  This case has the vintage blue floral fabric on both sides, then the floral is only on the flap, which I like a bit better.  The flap was an afterthought, so not as clean as I was hoping.  Oh well.
After digging through grandmas button stash, I finished off the closures and was good to go!
