iPad Mini Pocket Cover

Last Christmas Andy’s sister got a Kindle and we gave her a voucher to buy some Kindle books to go on it. However, I didn’t want that to be her only gift so to go with the voucher I found this sweet and easy tutorial to create a Kindle cover.

Fast forward to this summer I wanted a cover for my iPad mini that could go in my handbag and I didn’t need to worry about it getting roughed up too much. This was also at the same time that I got a new dressmaking book and I wanted to get used to my sewing machine again. I remembered that the Kindle cover had fit my iPad in too so I made the same pattern again.

Turns out, I was wrong. The same pattern didn’t fit at all but luckily I had enough fabric left to measure it all properly and make a cover that fits perfectly. Using fabric from a couple of fat quarters, plus some fleece/flannel for the inside, I was able to make three whole covers. This is a great pattern to use up remnants.

So, now I have a Kindle sized pocket going spare. If you, or anyone you know, is interested I have it up on my Etsy shop ready and waiting for a loving home.
