iPad Case

I've been wanting to make a case for my 1st-generation iPad for a while and finally got around to it. I found some discounted velvety material on the remnants rack at Joann's and thought it would be perfect to use as lining for the case. I installed a magnetic closure instead of using a button - it was so easy! The heavy stabilizer I used to stiffen the case was thick enough to provide ample structure yet soft enough to eliminate any need for holes to be cut to access the menu, volume, and sleep/wake buttons.

Given I didn't have any how-to instructions, I must say I'm quite proud my measurements and gut instincts were enough to get me through this project.

If I were to make the case again, I'd stitch some cute markings indicating where the buttons are and, of course, cut holes for the headphone jack and mute/rotation-lock toggle.

Also, I know this design isn't well suited for the 2nd-generation model given it has front and back cameras, so holes would also need to be cut for those. I won't think about it too much though until it's time to upgrade my iPad. ;)

    Good ideas, but it can be better if we design in a cool way which can be done by adding some drawing and painting into that. You can even start your business if you start doing that and that is also very interesting to do that. I am inspired by your work.
