Felt iPad Cover

By:

Say goodbye to scratches with this homemade iPad case. Layer strips of felt to create flowers and add then to your Felt iPad Cover from Heidi Borchers. This is a great way to keep your technology safe when you travel. Plus, the florals will always remind you of spring.

Felt iPad Cover
 

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue
  • 9″ x 12″ Felt – colors of your choice (I used 3 colors green, 2 colors pink, 2 colors purple, orange, butterscotch and yellow)
  • Scissors
  • Toothpick
  • Sewing machine (or needle and thread)
  • Ruler
  • Velcro (for closure)

Instructions:

  1. I used two pieces of 9″ x 12″ felt for my iPad cover. Cut approximately 1″ off one end of one piece of felt. This will allow for one piece to fold over the top end and velcro close.
     
  2. Stack the two pieces of felt, matching bottom edges, place iPad on top and mark stitching lines. Stitch together along stitching lines. If needed, cut away excess.
     
  3. To create the floral design, cut strips of felt 1/4″ wide. Using photo as guide, determine desired pattern.
     
  4. For the daisy flowers, start with 2-1/4″ strip of light pink. Dip end of toothpick into glue and glue ends of strip together. Next, cut 2-1/2″ strip of darker pink felt. Glue ends over light pink petal. Continue to build each petal with strips of felt glued at end. Create 5 matching petals for the daisy.
     
  5. For the flower center, apply glue to end of yellow strip and begin to roll. Keep adding a dab of glue every 1/2″ and rolling to create desired size of flower center.
     
  6. The leaves are created the same way as the flower petals.
     
  7. The stems are 4 strips of felt glued together.
     
  8. To create the sunflower, begin the same as for a flower center but continue to add various colored strips of felt to create a large center. The outside petals are created with one strip of orange felt.
     
  9. To adhere the pieces to the cover, use toothpick to apply glue to the back of the assembled pieces and glue in place. When gluing in place, be sure to add “movement” to your stems and shape to your leaves. Be sure to leave enough room at the top so that you can fold over the flap.
     
  10. Adhere piece of Velcro to the top felt to use for closure. Glue left-over felt strips to top flap.
