Did you get an ipad for Christmas? I was fortunate enough to get an ipad as a Christmas/Birthday gift. It pays to have a birthday close to Christmas!!
What I didn’t get was a cover. Of course, that wasn’t a problem I can make one that completely fits my style- Black and white plus an upcycle project too! You know I am kinda partial to anything upcycled!!
Now that it is complete, I can share with you how I did it…
Step 1: Cut the placemat width to 11”. To make sure I explain this well enough the original dimensions was 24”X14” now it is 24”X11”. (gee wiz, look at those finger marks!!!)
Step 2: On the long side take your double bias tape fold over and place on both sides.
Step 3: Fold over 10” to make sure there is still a flap. Sew down the sides with a 1/2” seam. Be sure to lock your seams by going back and forth at the start and finish!!
Step 4: For extra sturdiness I folded over the top of the flap 1/2” and sewed down
Step 5: Place button/s where you would like them. Sew in place.
Step 6: Cut elastic or hair rubber bands 3” (if you have small rubber bands you may not have to cut them at all.)
Step 7: Sew elastic in place, matching up to the buttons.
You are done!! Now you have an ipad cover uniquely yours!!! Costing you little to no money if you have the supplies on hand!!
Today I am sharing this at these great linky parties!!!
