More Sewing: (Not an iPad) Pouch

March 15, 2012By

When I saw this easy to follow tutorial on Jaceycraft, I knew I had to give it a try.

Not an iPad Pouch

This is Jacey’s iPad Pouch, which is, as the name suggests, the perfect size to protect your iPad. I don’t own an iPad, but this looked flexible enough to use for a variety of items. So while I cut the fabric for my Poochie bag, I also cut some fabric to make this pouch, too.

I made a couple of mods. Instead of batting, I used a layer of non-fusible interfacing which gives it stability without thickness. I’d probably use the batting if I was going to store electronics in this pouch, though.

I also sewed the zippers a little differently. I admit that I also wanted to try another zippered pouch to give myself a little more practice with zippers. After a couple of failed attempts, I’ve discovered that I can’t sew zippers well if they’re sandwiched ¬†between other layers. I found a workaround that I like, and once I perfect it I’ll take a few photos and make a tutorial.

In the meantime, I have an adorable pouch for more embroidery supplies, like this 8″ lap frame:

One more note: I have no idea what this fabric is, but I love it. And fabric fanatics out there know what print this is?

    I don’t know what that fabric is, either, but I WANT SOME.
