Patchwork iPad Sleeve

OK, this project from Robin at was written for a laptop sleeve, but there are excellent instructions for sizing yours to the device you want to use it for. In fact, these instructions can help you resize most of the projects featured in this article. Use scraps you have on hand, plus one solid or small print for the interior of this quilted sleeve. It closes with velcro.

e-Case Clutch with Pocket

This charming case from Schoolhouse Patterns closes with velcro and has a large pocket for your cord, charger, and other things you want to tote with your iPad. The instructions aren’t free, but we feel it’s worth the small cost for this cover that can be easily adapted to the iPad, iPad Mini or Kindle.

Quilted, Rollable iPad Case

This case from wraps around the iPad and secures with velcro. It opens like a book so your iPad can be held in one hand. Acrylic rods allow the cover to maintain its shape when rolled, allowing you to prop up the iPad for easier viewing. Clever!

The instructions can be adapted to fit any tablet. And, think about dressing it up with a quilt block or applique centered on the back of the case!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
