12 Gifts of Christmas Blog Hop – iPad Case Tutorial + Giveaway

  • Faith
  • Oct 17, 2011

Welcome to day 4 of the 12 Gifts of Christmas Blog Hop!

I hope everyone is having fun and getting some great ideas for holiday gifts this year. Today I am going to teach you how to make an iPad case. This tutorial can also be used to make a Kindle case (or Nook or any other tablet device), you will just need to measure your device and add about 1-1/4″ to the width and length to figure out your cut fabric sizes.

For example, the iPad I used for this tutorial was 7.5″ x 9.5″. And my cut fabric pieces below are 8.75″ x 10.75″. So yep Kindle users, you will need to break out the calculator!

Another note, I have an iPad 1 which is a bit thicker than an iPad 2. So iPad 2 users, you may want to cut your pieces 1/4″ (total) smaller to account for your sleeker design. πŸ™‚

Let’s get started.

iPad Case Tutorial


Supplies

9″ zipper
2″ of Velcro
Fabric (see amounts below)
Batting or Interfacing, depending on how poofy you want it (see amounts below)

Cut the following pieces:

Outer Case Fabric Back – 8.75″ x 10.75″
Front Top Portion – 3.75″ x 8.75″
Front Bottom Portion – 7.25″ x 8.75″
Pocket Lining Fabric Cut 1 – 3.75″ x 8.75″
Cut 1 – 7.25″ x 8.75″
Cut 1 – 8.75″ x 10.75″
Inner Lining Fabric Cut 2 – 8.75″ x 10.75″
Strap Fabric Cut 2 – 3.5″ x 3.5″
Zipper Ends Fabric Cut 2 – 1.5″ x 2.5″
Batting or Interfacing Cut 2 – 8.75″ x 10.75″
Cut 1 – 3.5″ x 3.5″

(Adding a note: Lots of people are curious as to what the fabric is that I used for the cover. It is Ruby Star Rising Transistor Radios and I bought it from Alice at Fresh Modern Fabric.)

**Please note: 1/4″ seam allowances for this project**

Assembly
1. Let’s start with the strap. Place your 2 pieces of 3.5″ x 3.5″ fabrics right sides together. Place the batting or interfacing on the bottom of the fabric sandwich (see photo). Stitch together around 3 of the 4 sides.

Flip right side out and press.

2. Trim your zipper to 8.75″.

3. Let’s make your zipper ends. I learned this technique from the talented Anna of Noodlehead. Not to sound too much like Oprah, but learning to do these zipper ends was a life changing moment for me…well, as far as nice looking zippers are concerned! πŸ™‚

Take your zipper ends and press the sides towards the center as shown in the photo below.

4. Place the zipper ends on the each end of the zipper like this:

Top stitch the zipper ends to both ends of the zipper. This give it a nice finished look.

5. Now let’s assemble the front outer portion of the case. Take your 3.75″ x 8.75″ piece of outer fabric and your 3.75″ x 8.75″ piece of pocket lining fabric. Place them right sides together and place the zipper in the middle of the fabric sandwich. See photo.

Pin in place.

6. Using your zipper foot, stitch down the fabric-zipper-fabric sandwich.

7. Open your sandwich and press.

8. Take your 7.25″ x 8.75″ piece of out fabric and your 7.25″ x 8.75″ piece of pocket lining fabric. We are going to repeat the previous step, but on the other side of the zipper. Place the fabric right sides together and place the zipper in the middle of the fabric sandwich. See photo.

Pin in place.

9. Using your zipper foot, stitch down the fabric-zipper-fabric sandwich.

10. Open your sandwich and press.

Front:

Back:

Top stitch down both sides of the zipper for a nice, finished look.

11. If you are like me, things may be *slightly* crooked now. Take this opportunity to trim your zipper front piece now to 8.75″ x 10.75″. Set this piece aside.

12. Let’s make the outer back of the case. Take the strap you assembled in Step 1. Take the 8.75″ x 10.75″ outer back piece of fabric. Center the strap on the top as shown in the photo below (Unfinished ends together) with a slight bit of overhang.

13. Baste into place with less than a 1/4″ seam allowance.

14. Let’s finish the assembly of the outer portion of the case. Make a fabric sandwich as follows:
8.75″ x 10.75″ outer back right side up – 8.75″ x 10.75″ assembled zipper front right side down – 8.75″ x 10.75″ pocket lining piece right side down

15. Stitch around sides and bottom, leaving the top open. Flip right side out and press.

16. Now let’s assemble the inner lining. Place the 8.75″ x 10.75″ inner lining pieces right sides together. Place an 8.75″ x 10.75″ piece of batting or interfacing on the top and bottom of the fabric sandwich.

Stitch around sides and bottom, leaving the top open. Do not flip right side out.

17. Time to put it together! With the exterior of the case right side out and the lining of the case wrong side out, place the exterior inside the lining and pin the tops together. Make sure the strap is tucked in.

18. Stitch around the top of the case, leaving about 4″ open to flip the case right side out.

19. Flip the case right side out and tuck the inner lining into the outer shell. Press. Top stitch around the top to close the opening and give the case a nice, finished look.

20. Add velcro to the back of the strap and the case. Stitch in place.

Congratulations! You’re done! Don’t forget to add your photos to the Flickr group.

    If I make one of these and leave under the Christmas tree – do you think the elves will fill it with an ipad??

  5. Sheila

    October 17, 2011

    This is great! My sister was given an iPad for her birthday this past summer, so this would make a great Christmas gift for her. Are your measurements for the current iPad version, or do I need to get her husband to take stealthy measurements for me?

  6. Anne

    October 17, 2011

    The colours you have used in this are gorgeous.

  7. poppyinipink

    October 17, 2011

    I thought the same thing as Fiona, in fact your tutorial has been a breakthrough for me in putting zips into bags per se …I want to send you a big hug!!! thanks so much and hope your day blossoms into a beautiful flower too.

  8. Jenelle

    October 17, 2011

    I really like that zipper trick too. It works incredibly well on metal zippers too (which can be tricky to sew nicely otherwise). Thanks for the tutorial!

  9. Susan

  13. Meghan

    October 17, 2011

    Will this work for the iPad2 as well? I’m assuming I’d use less since they are thinner?

    • Faith

      October 17, 2011

      Yes! I would make it a bit smaller since it’s thinner, probably subtract somewhere between 1/4″ to 1/2″ from the overall size of the cut pieces.

  14. Jackie

    October 17, 2011

    A fantastic idea for the grandkids this year, Will personalize for each on the 9 grandkids.

    I love the fabric here, especially the polk dots! I don’t even have an iPad, but this tutorial makes me want to make a case anyway. I’m sure I know someone who could use it. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tutorial and giveaway!

  19. Anne

    October 17, 2011

    Ooooh I’ve been wondering how people do that cool tab thing over the zipper for a while, and there it is, in such a cute tutorial too! I might need to go get an ipad so I can make this case. That’s how it works, right? πŸ˜€

  20. Vreni

    October 17, 2011

    Great tutorial! I especially like the part with the zipper! That’s always something I struggle with. But you’ve showed and explained it very well! Thanks very much!

    How cool is that! My sister is definitely getting a kindle pouch for christmas!

    • suvi

      October 17, 2011

      OK, so I made it already…with the zipper vertical rather than horizontal, since kindle is smaller. Believe it or not, I managed to sew in the zipper upside down, not once but four times in a row! Finally I just left it that way. Just in case anyone would like to know, the front and back measures I used were 9″x6Β½”, good for a kindle without a cover but if yours has a cover you’ll need to add 1″ to the width. Also I made the strap Β½” narrower and almost 1″ shorter.

  91. Lori C.

    October 17, 2011

    What a great tutorial. Really clear instructions. Just a thought….if you sew the velcro to the bottom of the tab before assembly you won’t see the stitches on the front. Maybe top stich around the edge of the tab to hold top and bottom together.

  92. Sharrieboberry

    October 17, 2011

    Hmmmm, I DO have a kindle. But do I have the m-skills to tackle the changes. Yea, probably. Thanks for the lovely pics. It definitely helps!

    Love the zipper pocket on the front! I need to make a case for my new laptop and was trying to think of a way to put cord storage on it. This will do nicely (maybe with an added gusset for the wider transformer).

  106. duff

    October 17, 2011

    You made that look so easy. I ‘d like to give it a try. I have not yet put a zipper in anything but the zipper ends really do give it a finished and polished look. I’m learning so much (I’m a beginner) and I have lots of projects on my to-do list now. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Hmm… I dunno, that has a zipper in it and zippers are scary. That actually looks like a really nice way to handle a zipper. I might just be able to do it. This is a really nice tutorial. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to try it out. Thanks for the tutorial and the chance to win.
