I do not only have a problem with hoarding yarn, I also have a huge amount of fabric. And I almost never sew something! As my project “52 weeks – 52 projects” is working out pretty great and my yarn stash is definitely smaller than at the beginning of this year, I have decided that I am also going to publish my sewing projects here. Not on a regular basis since I have to keep crocheting to have something new ready every week and I do have a full-time job, but I hope that I can show something at least from time to time.
I bought an iPad2 this spring, with the smart cover. The smart cover works great but you do not have all-round protection. So I decided to make a simple sleeve to protect it when I put it in my handbag.
I used some fabric I had left over from a futon cover I made 2 years ago. It does not have padding. But the fabric is stiff cotton and since I made the lining of the same fabric, the whole thing is pretty sturdy.
The sleeve closes with a velcro strip.
This week’s project was a present for a dear friend who got an iPad for Christmas but no cover to protect it. Since I am an expert on crocheting sleeves for various types of electronic (check our my online shop), I decided to make a sleeve for her iPad. To add something personal, I tried to crochet a letter for the first time. Luckily my friend’s name starts with an A, which was an easy enough letter to make. If you need a great tutorial on how to crochet letters, have a look here.
If you are interested in getting a similar sleeve for ourself, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am not selling them currently but will do so if requested.
So enough of the blabla, here are some pictures:
