February 2016 - Felted iPad Case

This month is our first "Inspiration of the Month"! These posts are meant to inspire you to get creative and think outside the box with your own projects. We look forward to seeing what you're inspired to make this year!

Charlene received an iPad Pro for Christmas and decided to make a case for it. Inspired by Heather's Felted Tote (see in store for sample and pattern), she sorted through her odds and ends of Galway (great for felting) in her stash and set out planning the stripes. The case is knit from the top down with two strands of Galway. She started with garter stitch to prevent curling and then switched to stocking stitch for the remainder. She grafted the bottom using Kitchener Stitch to make the entire project seamless.

She felted the case, checking often for size.

After felting, she sewed on recycled handles from another purse and used folded over wool strips to wrap around the case to prevent the handles from pulling.

Lining the case is also an option - re-claimed flannel would be perfect!
The iPad slides in perfectly!
