Adapt It to Fit Any Device!

Choose fabric you love for an attractive and protective iPad case. The case folds open and can be formed into a stand for reading and watching videos. Nice!

The instructions are written for a standard iPad but also include formulas to fit any device. So, this can also work for a Kindle and other tablets, as well as for phones.

Structure is provided by heavy chipboard (find it here) and the tablet is held in place with 1″ wide elastic. The elastic is easy to find in black and white, red is available here, or check your local fabric store for other colors. Fold-over elastic also works (check here).

The chipboard also provides protection for your device. We’re tempted to slide a piece of thin, compact batting into the piece covering the screen for additional padding against bumps but that’s up to you.

Clear instructions from Chica and Jo make this a quick and easy projects. Choose a lovely fabric and you’ll have one done before you know it.

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!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
