Now that PB-Complete is, well, complete (and featured on Andover Fabrics' Facebook page Monday!), I can get back to my other projects. I blogged about this iPad Mini sleeve earlier and now I am glad I can continue working on it.
This is the laptop computer sleeve project from the spring 2013 issue of Modern Patchwork. I am making it for my aunt's iPad mini, however, so I adjusted the measurements. I made it big enough for an iPad mini with a smart cover and case. At least I hope I did! (I made the front panel 9.5" x 8" and the back panel 12.5" x 8". Fingers crossed!)
In the top left picture, can you see that the large rectangle on the left has upside down ladies on it? I sewed it that way so that when I fold the flap down the ladies will be right side up. So, the back panel is made up of two pieces, one that is 9.5" and 3.5" for the flap. You need to do this only if your fabric is directional. I tried to make it such that the motifs would match when the flap is closed, but I didn't account for the fact that the batting would make the flap a bit shorter.
(Edit: The measurements given are the sizes I cut the pieces)
In my previous post I said the fabric was from Alexander Henry, but I noticed today that it is actually Timeless Treasures! I bought this fabric some time ago, so I'm not sure if it's still available.
