A Handmade Holiday 2013 — iPad Cozy


It’s day two of our Handmade Holiday series and we’re wondering if you’re as excited about the holidays as we are? Holiday ‘shopping’ got infinitely more fun once we started shopping from our own stash;). Today’s project is a simple iPad Cozy. Kelley Gilbert of Casa Crafty has put together an easy step-by-step that makes it a snap for even a beginner to whip one of these up.



iPad Cozy
Most people have a tablet or e-reader that they keep with them or want to keep protected. Using laminated cottons and two Pellon® stabilizers, this cozy is durable and water repellant. Dimensions listed are for the iPad, but the pattern can be customized for any e-reader. Kelley used a laminated cotton for her iPad Cozy, but you could also use a cotton fabric plus Pellon® 100 Vinyl Fuse™ to achieve the same effect.

Materials List
— One 11-1/2” x 18-1/2“ rectangle Laminated cotton
OR one 11-1/2” x 18-1/2“ rectangle cotton fabric (optional if not using laminated)
