I broke down and got an iPad2 for me.. I wasn’t sure I wanted one until I saw all of the great magazines you can get on it now. I have a bit of a “paper clutter” problem and I thought this might cut it down a bit. I also wanted to check out the new apps for sketching to see if it would be a good “idea notebook” and so far so good… (if you are curious I’m using the penultimate app and griffin stylus to sketch).
I got the new swanky cover from apple (thats fold up) but soon realized that I could not be trusted with JUST this cover.. I’m way to clumsy. I needed something padded. Plus I wanted a cover that I could store my stylus, headphones and a few other things in.
If you follow me on facebook- you know that this is not the first case I made! I measured my iPad the first time, made the cover then realized that the iPad would NOT FIT!! So now I am the proud owner of a oversized kindle case or a padded jewelry pouch- whichever you want to think of it as.
So back to the drawing board and I came up with this one.
I added a zipper to the back- so I can stash my stuff in it- It actually works out quite well, as I have been putting my phone in the zip pouch too-
