Handmade Ipad2 Case

My father is really tuned into the internet, just like my siblings and I are. Last year my brother bought him an old pc retired at his workplace. He uses it for surfing and my mother reported he spends alot of time reading articles on it.

The pc became faulty lately, so I suggested to get him an ipad2 for Father's Day. My brothers, being guys (read tech crazy people) are both supportive, so we chipped in to get Father an ipad2. I can see it will serve him well since he mainly surfs using the pc.

I am excited too, because I will have an excuse to make a case for it. It was both challenging and fun making this case. The fun thing was, if i needed to find out something in the process of creating the case, i just needed to switch on the ipad and search. ta da!




However, this type of case (one with window) is few and far between for an handmade ipad case on the internet. Don't be fooled by its minimalist look, it was quite difficult to make.

Made By Inagaki

I need a clasp purse. I had tried to make one many times ever since I got the frames.
Previously I did this:-

Looks great, but it doesn't function well. The opening is too small. I had not gone back to this purse yet, I will try to figure it out later.

Today, I made this:-


I was trying to follow komihinata's simple style. BUT I just couldn't resist some lace and an applique!! (Is that the reason why I'm the owner of a sewing embelishments shop???!! Just so I can stock alot of them and not feel guilty..heh..)

I made the pattern for this after looking for some on the internet. Not entirely happy with the shape, but I guess I will settle for this one, for starters!

I made a (usable) clasp purse AT LAST!

The blue and pink checks fabric is on sale at my shop on etsy here, and more black velvet appliques are found here.

Thank you for looking! :)
