I made a quilted cover and added a small 5 inch pocket inside for my ear phones. I also added a shoulder strap on it ... now it is a quilted I-pad shoulder bag :)
I made one for my daughter in-law too...made her happy:)

I used to feel that way about Xmas, but then I learned something and now I don't feel that using Xmas is that bad. In Greek, the word for Christ is spelled Χριστός

Maybe not for all people, but this is the origin of using Xmas instead of Christmas, I've been told.

I choose to be positive about it. Even if someone is using it to take Christ out of Christmas (and I am not saying anyone here was doing that) He finds a way to fit in!!!! :-)

Thanks, I was looking for such a pattern myself and I like this one a lot!

I made one very similar for my kindle, but I put a pocket on the back of it for the cord so when ever I go to my folk's house I won't forget the cord as it stays right there in the pocket. I should have made the pocket a little bit longer tho. It was easy to make too. I also found a book cover at the Goodwill that has a zipper on it and made some protection and I do use it once inna while, but there is no place for the cord unless I make a little pouch and attach it to the strap that is on it. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

Your tute was great! Loved the fabrics you used on both. Will be making this cover this weekend. Thanks for taking the time to put this in a tute.

Default Ipad/Kindle/ereader cover

I made two of these - one for me and one for my daughter, just before we went to Switzerland this summer. They made up pretty easily and were robust and effective, as well as looking good.

The link is: http://www.chicaandjo.com/2009/09/03...le-cover-case/

I used a fat quarter, and joined it half way down. This gave me a piece longer than the instructions specified, but I used the extra to make a pocket for a pencil or piece of dowelling. I found this helped it stand up more successfully.

I modified the pattern a bit, made it bigger, and made one for my sister's Ipad. I don't have a photo of that, but it looks similar to the one in the picture, but just bigger!

Hope you find a pattern that suits you.

Our priest(Catholic) told us that Xmas was good because X is the symbol for Christ.

I'm sorry but I really thought this thread was about Ipad covers. A number of posters have made the comment that in the rules that we have all subscribed to, there should not really be any discussion about religious topics. Please can this now stop. I am getting bored.
