Hi everyone! I am so excited to be joining my friend Bonnie for her Sweet as Honey blog tour! You may have seen Sarah, from No Hats in the House, post her GORGEOUS arrow quilt yesterday.. man, that is beautiful!
Today I’m excited to share with you a tutorial on how to make a quilted iPad Mini pouch. I recently have been traveling, and although my iPad Mini is in a Lifeproof case (love it!!), I still worry about the screen getting scratched, etc… SO, I made this super simple quilted pouch.
S U P P L I E S
2 Fat Quarters
A bit of batting
Step One: Using your iPad Mini as a pattern, cut two rectangles from each fat quarter and two from the batting that measure 1″ larger around each edge of the iPad. For the mini, it will measure 7 1/2″ x 11″.
Step Two: Place the lining fabric wrong side face up with the batting on top of it and the outside fabric on top of the batting right side up. ((Sandwich the batting in between the two fabrics!)) And then safety pin them together using about five safety pins. Repeat this for the other two pieces of fabric and batting.
Step Three: from the top of the short end, quilt a squiggly line down the length of the sandwiched pieces. Sew about 5 lines of quilting. Repeat this for the other set of fabric and batting. Next, overlock or zig zag stitch around the edges.
Step Four: Place your zipper face down on the RIGHT side of the outside of your pouch. The zipper teeth should be about 1″ from the top edge. Stitch in place.
Step Five: Repeat this with the other size of the zipper and the other side of the outside of the pouch.
Step Six: next, sew the sides and bottom with a simple straight stitch. Flip right side out, and you’re finished!
