Playing around!!!

Last year I treated myself to an ipad.  I must admit I don't go very far without it as it contains my 'life'!!  I have apps for just about everything!!

Recently I realised that to travel over the pond I'd need something to carry it in  - but what?  Oh, yes, there are lots and lots of 'things' you can buy but I like to make my life difficult (and I like sewing too!!).

In the pictures below are two neoprene holders which the ipad fitted into  (before my scissors got to them!) with a little bit of space round it.  Wonderful but not very 'substantial'.  Well, they did come from Poundland!!  So I took them apart and then re-constructed them so that the 'two became one'.  I suppose you could call it a 'marriage made in Jane's conservatory'.  Then I set about covering them - you can see two pictures of WIP and my rather 'scruffy' Ipad case!!!  

Well, you know me - I do like 'bright' so at the bottom is the finished cover - with integral carrying strap.  Isn't that the most amazing fabric?  I don't think I'll lose it very easily!!!  Now I'm ready to go. 

WHAT?  I've got a few months to wait?  Shame!

A woman after me own heart. This is just the thing i do all the time. Have a lovely beading loom made from coat hangers, springs from a car and bits of wood. Saved me a fortune over the years.
Love the fabric, very bright and cheerful.

It's very pretty! Pink cats, perfect.I am impressed, my life is on bits of paper, and I refuse to carry even a mobile phone around with me! (I do have one, but it lives in a drawer for most of the time.Too intrusive.)
Tatting and an i-pad - that is an interesting mix!

So, you are going across the pond? Where all are you going? Are you going to the US?

Love the bag! I made a cover for my iPad 2 and just love it. Taking stuff apart and making something new from it is like second nature to me, too.
