Pretty Ipad Case Sewing Tutorial

This week sewing tutorial is a easy tutorial on how to make an ipad cover. If you can stitch in a straight line, you can easily make this pretty ipad cover complete with padding and loop and button closure.

I made this ipad cover for my niece Molly as part of her 'Pretty Pastel collection', which matches the pretty pencil case tutorial I showed you last week and the pretty coin purse I shared the week before.

Next week I will be sharing the pretty pom pom trim tote bag sewing tutorial...
