Japanese Linen iPad Case

Linen iPod case

Available in my Etsy shop.

Despite having to do laundry and mop the basement floor yesterday, I managed to finish my linen iPad case. I used Co-Co-Chi E Style fabric by Kokka, Japan and Robert Kaufman’s Quilter’s Linen in Grey and decided to keep the zippered flap on the front adding a simple band to hold it closed and a coordinating zipper pull. The pocket is big enough to fit my stylus and iPhone. There are 2 layers of cotton batting quilted onto the front and the back of the case for protection and is snug enough that my iPad can easily slip in and out but doesn’t move around. For a bit of fun and surprise,I used Tufted Tweets in purple for the lining.

Will take and post photos of the lining and back this afternoon.

    • Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I love the Japanese linen too, it has a very rich feel to it, not quite home dec. but definately heavier than quilting cotton.

    • This is a Bending Pins style pouch I designed myself. ;D

      I am going to follow along with the Zakka sew-along but I just don’t have the spare time to sew along, sadly, but I did buy the book, it’s supposed to arrive today!! I’ positive there will be a few projects I’ll be making from the book.

      Cheers and thanks for taking the time to comment!

  1. Ooooooo I love it! I’m a sucker for Apple, Japanese prints, grey & purple. LOL! Did you use a pattern or wing it? And how does the strap close? Velcro or snap or? You did a great job on this!

    • Thanks Johnnybug! I winged this after trying out a written pattern that was waaaay too big, even for my new iPad which is a little thicker than the old. The flap simply slides under the strap, no velcro or snap, I didn’t want anything that could scratch the iPad. The iPad doesn’t slip out, it’s for protection purposes if you want to throw it in your bag with a bunch of other stuff.
