DIY Ipad sleeve

On the second day of my Ipad ownership, I sat in the garden decorating my Smurf village, when something dropped on my back (I would like to say it was an insect or something else that justified my reaction, but I found a bobby pin in my chair later that afternoon), I was startled and send my Ipad flying towards the garden tiles. You can probably imagine what happened. Now, €100 poorer and a sense of fear of damaging my Ipad again richer, I have decided to make my own Ipad sleeve (I suspected it would be easy as beans, which it is!) as additional protection, beside the hard case.

I have used Ikea origami fabric and fake fur fabric (for protection). The bottom part is the back of the fake fur, which looks a bit messy, but I like it. You can use any kind of fabric you like, as long as you also use a sturdy fabric for protection. When using fake fur, remember that the fur takes up quite some space as well, so make your sleeve a bit bigger when using fake fur.

This tartan sleeve is made from an old scarf and a scrap of leftover fabric (lined with the fake fur again). 

Hopefully, the lovely J.W. Anderson for Topshop hard case/ DIY sleeve combination will keep the Ipad safe.

Thanks a bunch for having a look!
