    I sure wish people would quit using the term xmas meaning Christmas. Christ was born on Christmas, not X.

    I am so with you on this one. When I was in grade school; many, many years ago we did a bill board; one have showed Christmas having Christ as part of the word and the other showed the Xmas which showed it as money. When you spell Xmas you take Christ out of Christmas and that's what it is supposed to be all about. I'm a fan of shortening words especially when text messaging but this is one word that I can't shorten; I always think back to what was taught in school about the difference in the two words. No, I didn't go to a Christian school; it was public but long before people felt the need to remove it from schools. Merry Christmas to all.

    Try out Whistlepig Creek. They have a great pattern for the covers. Also, I'm sure if you google it you'll come up with lots of patterns, probably a lot of them free.

    If you go to emlibrary.com they have one. It shows how to make it along with the sizes for the different eReaders. It's under thier projects; you can just ignore the part where you do the embroidery unless you want to do that. After seeing it this weekend I'm making one for my coworker who has the Nook.

    I have a pattern from Atkinson Designs which is called "Reader Wrap" ATK-156. It's finished size is 6"w X 8-1/2h X 1" deep. It is for a Nook, Kindle, or other e-reader (5-1/2 X 8 or smaller. Easily open and close securely with elastic or velcro. Includes an optional pocket for the M-edge book light.

    When I "need" to shortcut the word Christmas, I use a "t"....tmas...as it looks like a cross, especially when writing it. It gets the message across. I also really dislike the "X'.

    Karen K - We agree with you about Christmas vs. Xmas. I have an old record of George Beverly Shea singing, "Don't wish me Merry Xmas." It's not that much harder to write Christ than X. Thank you for taking a stand.

    Guys, play nice! Not everyone is religious. I'm sure we all remember how out of hand things got with the bumper sticker thread.

    Thanks for saying what some may not have the courage to.

    It's a shame Christmas now-a-days is all about gifts and not about our Savior's birth.

    Courage comes from accepting others not belittling them.

    Please can everyone use the "Thumper rule": "If you can't say something nice,..., don't say anything at all!"

    Xmas is a term that has been used for thousands of years... blame the Greeks and early Xians!
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xmas

    As far as iPad covers, I made mine with Timtex for sturdiness along with padding for softness and with elastic in the corners to hold the iPad in. Thanks for the links to many other ways to make a cover though. Had I seen those earlier, it would have made my lowly effort much easier.

    Isn't this supposed to be a quilters' forum, not a place for religious/non remarks that have nothing to do with quilting? Reminds me of a thread a year or so ago with folks outraged about how the "government" was trying to do horrible things to everyone. Not appropriate for this board, folks.

    Just FYI, X is the the letter 'chi' which is the first letter of the Greek word for Christ. It has been abbreviated in this way for many, many years -even in religious documents. If the secular community WERE going to abbreviate it, don't you think it would be C-mas???

    I saw a You-Tube demo of Nancy Zieman with a pattern from Clover - she showed how to assemble them. Thank you for the Tip Nut reference I had lost my reference to that.

    So, right you are. We all have quilting in common, but may not have the same in belief's.

    I made one of these for my e-reader. If you know the size of the Ipad you could just enlarge it. I used some jelly roll strips that I had left over for mine. I used the new iron on velcro to keep it closed. Here is the Moda Bake Shop Website

    And here is a photo of my cover:

    sometimes its not thinking, that gets us into trouble! years ago while labeling Christmas overstocks, we were told to xmas it faster, time saving. A customer came down the aisle,& I asked if I could her. She said yes, - could you PLEASE stop Xing Jesus off his day? That was the last time I ever XMAS'D, Christmas.It relly didn't save that much time &not doing it showed some respect for the holiday.
